If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to download and complete this travel questionnaire which will enable the nurse to prepare for your consultation.
Please take the completed and signed travel questionnaire to the practice reception and they will be happy to make a 20 minute appointment with a Practice Nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.
It is important to make this initial appointment at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse.
We are able to provide and administer those vaccines which are available under the NHS (ie Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio combined vaccine; Hepatitis A; Typhoid, Cholera). The NHS does not provide other travel vaccines or antimalarials. Patients will be advised to contact a private travel clinic to have these administered.
Please note we do not provide yellow fever, cholera, rabies, Japanese encephalitis or tuberculosis. Malaria tablets are available from some local pharmacies.
There is currently a global shortage of hepatitis B vaccine which is now affecting the UK. We have put in place measures so that the NHS and other providers can vaccinate those at highest risk. This does mean that those at lower risk may not be able to get the vaccine today but will have to wait a little longer. Please follow this link for further advice.
If you require travel vaccines which are not available on teh NHS, more detailed advice about complex or you are travelling within 6 weeks then please contact a specialist travel provider. If they advise you will need a vaccination which is free on the NHS then they will provide you with a risk assessment and ask you to make an appointment with a practice nurse.
