A practice nurse is able to advise travelers about the immunisations they need. Please make sure you book your appointments at least 8 weeks before your holiday to ensure adequate cover.
We ask that you book a 20 minute appointment with one of the practice nurses to complete a travel risk assessment form and for her to advise on what immunisations are needed. If an immunisation is needed it may be given at this appointment. A charge will be made for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS for example yellow fever. A list of charges is available in reception
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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.
