If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the Travel Questionnaire below and submit to the practice nurse. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
Please contact surgery approx 5 working days after submitting your Travel Questionnaire to see if an appointment with the Practice Nurse is necessary.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to submit the Travel Questionnaire as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as an appointment may be required with the practice nurse if vaccinations are necessary and to allow required time for the Nurse to receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. You need to contact surgery approx 5 working days after submitting your Travel Questionnaire to find out if an appointment with the Practice Nurse is necessary and your appointment needs to be at least 6 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.
