If you are travelling abroad and you think you may need Vaccinations, please call in the surgery to pick up a travel pack and make an appointment with the nurse, the form needs to be filled in and brought back to the surgery 4 weeks before you fly.
Hepatitis B vaccinations are no longer free on the NHS we can still give you these Vaccinations if needed but there will be a £20 charge per Vaccine.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial enquiry as early as possible to ensure adequate protection. Some courses of travel vaccinations can take up to six weeks to complete the full course.
Some travel vaccines have to be 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.
