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.
Appointments can be made with our Practice Nurses to discuss and plan your travel vaccinations. If possible you should arrange this appointment at least two months before you are due to travel. You will firstly be booked for a telephone consultation with a Practice Nurse to ascertain what vaccines are required then booked for a routine appointment if deemed appropriate.
PLEASE NOTE DOCTORS DO NOT SEE PATIENTS FOR TRAVEL.
