If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. Before your appointment with the nurse please complete the Travel Vaccinations patient questionaire, click the link below to download:

It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
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. 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.
Other non NHS vaccine charges:
ACWY Nimenrix (Men C) £45
Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis £15 (private prescription charge) plus cost of vaccine please check with the pharmacy
Yellow fever vaccinations are available at this practice. The cost of the yellow fever vaccinations is not covered under NHS services and so a charge of £50.00 applies
