We offer a full range of travel vaccinations for both our own patients and, on a private basis for local residents. Some travel vaccinations are funded by the NHS and those that are not can be provided on a private basis. We are a registered yellow fever vaccination centre.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. Please make it clear to the receptionist when booking that you require travel vaccinations and which countries you will be visiting. An appointment is required for each traveller.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. We have most travel vaccines in stock, however on occassions a second appointment may be required . You must allow 4 weeks after this appointment before you travel to ensure the vaccine is effective.
If you are planning a long trip to multiple worldwide destinations you should book 4 months in advance
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.
