Travel Vaccinations (including Yellow Fever)
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to complete and return to us the travel questionnaire (available from reception or downloadable below) This will allow the practice nurse to check the up to date travel and vaccination recommendations for your trip before your appointment with her.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below.
It is important to let us have your completed travel questionnaire as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel; as an appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations and travel advice. The vaccines may have to be ordered as we do not keep all vaccines in stock. Your second appointment should be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines will incur a charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. The fees must be paid at reception before you see the nurse for your vaccination(s).
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association's (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
