Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse at least 6-8 weeks before the date of travel to discuss your travel arrangements.

Travel advice is becoming increasingly more involved - if your trip is more than a simple holiday, the Nurse will advise you to access a Private Travel Clinic for more Specialist advice.  Please see list below.

At your initial appointment, the nurse will advise which NHS vaccines are required.  A prescription will be requested from the Doctor for these and this prescription will be ready 48-hours after your initial appointment.   Your second appointment with the Practice requires to be at least two weeks before you travel to receive any benefit from the vaccination, however, full benefit requires at least four weeks prior to travel.

We cannot provide advice on complex vaccination schedules, anti-malaria recommendations or travel prescriptions.  Please see list of Private Travel Clinics below.
