We offer a comprehensive service for the foreign traveller.
Please contact the surgery at least 6 - 10 weeks before the expected date of departure with the Practice Nurse. However, it is a good idea to make an appointment for travel advice / vaccinations, even if it is last minute. Certain travel immunisations are not covered by the NHS and a charge may be levied. Full price details are available on this website or you can contact the surgery. Alternatively you may wish to consider a private health clinic.
It is also advisable for patients to do their own research regarding the country they are visiting. Recommended websites are: http://travelhealthpro.org.uk/country-information and http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Travel-immunisation/Pages/Introduction.aspx
Please click here to complete a 'Travel Risk Assessment Form'. Please print it out and fill it in by hand. This will need dropping into the surgery as soon as possible before your appointment date so the nurse has adequate time to prepare for your appointment.
