Noticeboard

Have you booked your holiday yet? 

Please remember to speak to the surgery well in advance of you going abroad for your holidays as some vaccinations need to be given six weeks or more in advance to take effect. We do not stock all vaccinations as they have to be ordered in due to 'shelf-life' and can add time onto the process.

Pick up our revised 'Travel' form from reception or speak to our staff for help and guidance.

 


Travel Vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a Travel Questionnaire and upon returning this to the surgery you will 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

Europe Europe & Russia

North America North America

Central America Central America

South America South America

Caribbean Caribbean

Africa Africa

Middle East Middle East

Central Asia Central Asia

East Asia East Asia

Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines 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.
