We are able to offer basic travel advice and information. If your trip is complex or extended you may need to seek additional advice from a specialist travel clinic.
We are able to give polio, tetanus, diphtheria, typhoid and hepatitis A vaccines. We do not charge for these.
We do not offer hepatitis B, meningitis ACWY, yellow fever, rabies, Japanese encephalitis, tick borne encephalitis or cholera vaccines. Information regarding specialist travel clinics which offer these vaccines can be obtained from reception; please note these clinics will make a charge for providing this service.
Tablets for malaria prevention are not available on the NHS therefore you will pay the full cost of these. Some can be bought “over the counter” whilst others require a private prescription. The practice charges for issuing private prescriptions; this is in addition to the cost of the medicine.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements; it is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible and at least 6 weeks before you travel as a second appointment may be required to ensure you receive the full course of vaccinations.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
