The practice has a travel clinic which is held on late Tuesday afternoon by our practice nurse.
If you need advice regarding travel vaccinations please complete a travel form with as much information as possible. The form can either be downloaded from the website or obtained from the practice reception desk. The form needs to be returned to the practice at least 6 weeks prior to travelling. Failure to do so could result in you being asked to attend a local travel clinic.
If you require vaccinations the practice will arrange an appointment with the Practice Nurse.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
