Our Travel Clinics
We offer weekly travel clinics, which are bookable up to 4 weeks in advance. Please be aware that these clinics do get booked very quickly so we would advise you to contact us well in advance of your trip to to book an appointment. In the event that our clinics are fully booked and we are unable to offer you an appointment within 2 weeks of your departure date we will direct you to one of the local private travel services.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with a Practice Nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include planning and discussion about which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. We have dedicated travel clinic appointments with our nursing team.
It is very important that you tell the reception team member that you need an appointment regarding travel, as otherwise the booking may not be appropriate, and you will need to book again.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible – at least 8 weeks before you travel – as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not stored in the surgery. Travel consultations are provided as an NHS service, but you may need to pay a prescription charge for some vaccines.
Travel consultations are provided as an NHS service, but not all vaccines are available on the NHS, please see the table below for more details:
|Vaccines available on the NHS||Vaccines NOT available on the NHS(for these you will need to attend a private travel clinic)|
|Hepatitis A||Hepatitis B|
|Diptheria, Tetanus, Poilo||Rabies|
|Tick Bourne Encephalitis|
|We are a designated Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre. Vaccination is charged at £60.00 per individual being vaccinated, and there are no exclusions to this charge. We do not have the facilities to take payment by any other means than cash. You only need yellow fever vaccination once in your life. We can only issue duplicate certificates if you are able to produce full information about a vaccine that has been previously administered (name of individual, date, batch code).|
Before your appointment, please look at this website for more information about staying healthy while travelling.
Please do not book an appointment with a GP regarding travel health, as they are unlikely to be able to offer advice. Practice Nurses do not offer telephone consultations for travel advice.
