Travel Health

Stay safe and healthy abroad

If you are travelling abroad you may need to be vaccinated. Please contact us via our ‘Submit a New Request’ and ask for a travel form which will be sent to you by text at least eight weeks before you travel to enable the practice nurse to discuss the vaccinations you will need, which will depend on where you are travelling. You will be sent a text with a link to complete.

An initial appointment must be made at least eight weeks before you travel so that the vaccines can be ordered. You will need a second appointment to receive the vaccinations.  Your second appointment should be at least two weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription which cost more than the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
