If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please complete the travel form with full details of your trip. This must include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. When you return the completed form to the practice you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse about two weeks later to discuss your travel arrangements and start the course of vaccination.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to complete the travel form as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as your appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work. In some cases you may need a second appointment to complete the vaccinations. These vaccines may have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
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.

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please download, fill out and return the travel form. When you return the form, we will make an appointment for you to see the nurse about two weeks later. The practice nurse will review the details on your travel form and if your appointment is not required, the practice nurse will telephone you with advice and the appointment will be cancelled.
Please give as much detail as you can on the form to ensure you have the full advice and travel immunisations for the trip you are undertaking.
