If you are planning to travel outside the UK, you may need to be vaccinated against some of the serious diseases found in other parts of the world.
In the first instance you should seek advice from a pharmacy or a private travel clinic at least 8 weeks before you're due to travel.
The Practice is able to provide NHS vaccinations only recommended for travel. This is a limited range of travel vaccinations (where these are indicated only) which includes Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Diphtheria*, Tetanus* and Polio* (*may be combined)
We do not provide advice as to which other vaccinations you may require for overseas travel including to areas of higher risk. If you require vaccinations other than those offered by the NHS, you will need to arrange to have these administered privately.
If you require NHS vaccinations, please download and complete the form below (also available via our reception) and return it to the practice. We will then book you into the next available appointment with our Practice Nurse. If the next available nurse appointment is not soon enough for your travel needs then you will need to pay for these injections at a Travel Clinic.
