If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the travel risk assessment form (please note you must be a registered patient). This can be collected from the admin team at reception or filled in online. The nurse will then determine what vaccinations are needed. If you filled the form in online we will contact you by phone to make the appointment. If you hand it into reception we will book you an appointment there and then to secure an appointment. If the nurse then believes you don't need any vaccinations we will NOT contact you. If you are unsure please contact the surgery.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel as some vaccinations are a course and need to be administered over 3-6 weeks. Please also bear in mind than that most vaccines take 10-14 days to work.
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.
Please remember that as travel advice and vaccinations are non NHS Services we cannot prioritise these over other NHS based nursing appointments.
You can save time by completing our Travel Risk Assessment Form.
