If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible. Please complete the form and return to us at least 4 - 6 weeks before you are scheduled to travel for short stays abroad and 12 weeks before long trips. The vaccines have to be ordered as they are not normally a stock item.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
Please complete and return a copy of our Travel Questionnaire to the practice or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can either obtain a form from reception or print one out by clicking on the link here Travel Questionnaire
