Travel

WE NEED AT LEAST  1 CALENDAR MONTH BEFORE YOU TRAVEL TO SAFELY PROCESS YOUR TRAVEL FORM. PLEASE GIVE US ENOUGH TIME.
 
You don't always need vaccinations to travel abroad. If you do, the type of travel jabs you need depends on which country you're visiting and what you're doing.
 
First, for travel vaccinations the nurses need you to complete a Travel form (1 per person) and hand it in to reception.  The link to the form is below
 
travel-form
 
This is so our practice nurse can find out whether your existing UK jabs are up-to-date. Upon receipt of this the nurses will look at your records to see what vaccinations you have had and what you need.  
 
Then we will ask you to book a 20 minute travel consultation with the nurse, either Pam or Miriam, to discuss any vaccinations required and they will also give you general advice about travel vaccinations and travel health, such as protecting yourself from malaria.
 
Our practice nurse can give you a booster of your UK jabs if you need one. They may be able to give you the travel jabs you need, either free on the NHS or for a charge.
Alternatively, you can visit a local private travel vaccination clinic for your UK boosters and other travel jabs.
 
Not all vaccinations are available free on the NHS, even if they're recommended for travel to a certain area.
