Travel Health


Our practice nurses are available by appointment to offer medical advice regarding travel and vaccinations where appropriate. Please telephone reception to book an appointment. 

Our nurses can provide travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. 

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least two months before you travel- as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

From 1st August 2019, we are only able to offer a travel vaccination service to cover vaccines which are available free of charge on the NHS service.

If you are advised during your health assessment that you need any of the NHS funded vaccinations listed below, please make a routine appointment with the practice nurse at least two weeks (or four weeks with MMR) before you travel.

The vaccinations covered by the NHS are -

- Polio/tetanus/diptheria

- Typhoid

- Hepatitis A

- Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR)
