Do you need vaccinations?
Our nurses can arrange to give appropriate immunisations available from the NHS. We do not provide travel advice or private travel vaccines and suggest patients research the area they are travelling to and look at the Travel Health Pro website Travel Health Pro to see which vaccines they need. If you need NHS vaccines please complete the travel form and bring to the practice allowing 8 weeks before departure. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.
If you are travelling in less than 8 weeks time you will need to attend a private travel clinic.
Please note: you must be a registered patient at our Practice to receive travel vaccines from us.
