Travel Clinic

Travel Immunisations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to fill out a travel form (available below or in the surgery).

One of our practice nurses will contact you to make an appointment to discuss your travel arrangements.  This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  -  ideally at least 8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations.  

If we do not receive a request for this appointment at least 6 weeks before your travel date we will redirect you to another service as we are not able to review  you notes and order the relevant vaccines after this time - we do not keep travel vaccines in stock as most are private and need to be paid for by the patient.

Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work. 

If you wish to find out some more information on what vaccinations you may require for your trip, this site is of particular use.

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.


Most 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.  Payment is required at the second appointment. See Private Fees
