Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

Until very recently, the surgery has offered a full travel vaccination service, but we will no longer be providing this .  It is now your responsibility to assess what vaccinations you will require for your trip.  Advice can be found at:

"Fit for Travel" website http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/destinations

You will be able to get all the advice you require to make an informed choice regarding the vaccinations you will require.  Some vaccinations are free of charge on the NHS.

The vaccinations which are available on the NHS are:

  • Diptheria/Tetanus/Polio (combined)
  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid

These can be prescribed and administered by a nurse at the surgery if needed.

Other vaccinations , possibly required for more exotic or unusual destinations, complex travel itineraries, or long stay vacations , will have to be sourced from a travel clinic (available in most pharmacies).  There will be a charge for these.  If you would rather have all of your vaccinations done at these clinics, they can also give the above vaccines, but they will charge for these. 

We strongly advise that you check your requirements at least 3 months before travel, as sometimes a course of up to 3 vaccinations need to be given over the course of several weeks.

More info can be found on our "New Travel Vaccination Policy" on the link below, there is also a tear off slip if you require any of the vaccinations provided by the NHS and return to the surgery, where your prescription and appointment will be generated.

Thank you
