The surgery offers appointments with the practice nurse for patients who require travel health information and vaccinations.
It is essential that prior to making the appointment you access www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk to obtain a health brief. This should be brought to the appointment. Wherever possible please book your appointment 8 weeks before travel as some vaccinations require more than one dose with a gap of a number of weeks between doses. When booking an appointment do let the receptionists know so that they can allocate the correct amount of time.
Please note not all vaccines are available under NHS and there will be a charge for those that aren’t. Some vaccines are not available at this practice but we can advise if required.
Malaria medication is not available on NHS but the practice nurses can arrange a prescription privately.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
