For routine protection against Tetanus and Polio please make appointments with the practice nurse.
We also offer a full range of vaccinations for foreign travel.
For all advice and information regarding foreign travel please initially fill in a travel form. The form is available from reception. When you return this form the receptionist will make you an appointment with the practice nurse.
Please give the reception staff plenty of notice so that they can try to ensure that your appointment with the nurse is at least 6 weeks before departure. The reason we need so much notice is that some travel vaccinations are a course of injections and take time to become effective.
Please note that not all travel vaccinations are free of charge.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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.
