If you are travelling abroad, you may need vaccinations or medication to prevent contracting diseases. Many vaccinations are available on the NHS and do not incur a charge but there are some which need to be paid for privately and are detailed below ***. We do not keep travel vaccinations in stock; therefore we need payment before we can order or book the appointments with the nurse. We may be more expensive than a travel clinic so please feel free to shop around.
Please be aware that we need at least 8 weeks’ notice before you travel in order to assess your requirements and adhere to the vaccine schedules. We will try our best to accommodate but if we do not have appointments available, you will need to attend a travel clinic.

*** Please note that the prices quoted are based on vaccine availability from our regular suppliers. In the event that vaccines need to be sourced from an alternative supplier these prices may increase. If this is the case, a member of the surgery team will contact you, prior to ordering, to confirm that you wish to go ahead with the vaccinations.
These tablets are not available on the NHS. If a private prescription is required, we charge £16.00 per patient for this service. Please be aware that the pharmacy will make a further charge for the medication.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out our travel questionnaire (available from reception or Download) and hand in to reception. You should then ring after two weeks to establish what, if nay, vaccinations you need and book an appointment with the nurse.
