We will no longer offer a private travel service. This means that our receptionists and nurses will send you to a private travel clinic or chemist to obtain vaccines or medications which you are not entitled to on the NHS (such as Yellow Fever and Malaria tablets). The NHS does provide typhoid, Hep A and Diptheria, Tetanus & Polio vaccinations.
We advise you to access the following website to identify which vaccinations and medication you require based on your travel destination prior to traveling. If you require the NHS provided vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse. It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel.
Please bring with you:
- what is advised on the website below
- a list of the countries and areas within countries that you are visiting
- bring a list of previous vaccinations you have been given at private clinics and dates they were given
Please note that many pharmacies now offer a malaria service online and over the counter without the need for a private prescription from the surgery. Please speak to your pharmacist.
