Travel Vaccinations

We provide information to enable you to protect your health when travelling abroad. To ensure that your health is fully covered before your holiday please complete and return this form to us at least 8 weeks before you travel. If you book after this time we cannot guarantee that you will be fully protected.

 

PLEASE NOTE – WE HAVE ONLY LIMITED AVAILABILITY FOR THIS SERVICE – PATIENTS WHO WILL BE TRAVELLING WITHIN 4 WEEKS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE AN APPOINTMENT BEFORE THEY TRAVEL

 

For families or couples travelling together please note that you must fill in one form for each patient travelling.

 

Our specially trained nurses will then review your medical records and draw up recommendations for the NHS vaccinations you require for your trip. The following vaccinations are available on the NHS if they are recommended by the Department of Health for the area you are travelling to:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio

Please note that our nurses do not provide other vaccinations such as Hepatitis B, Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis and Yellow Fever and also Malaria preventative treatments – these are only available on a private basis from specialist clinics or pharmacies. We therefore suggest that you contact a provider of these services now to discuss your requirements. Sometimes you will require a course of vaccinations to ensure you are protected, it is vital that you make arrangements for these as soon as possible, please do not wait until your appointment at the surgery.

Please fill out the form below and hand in to reception. You will be contacted by one of our nurses for an appointment.
