If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to contact the surgery on 01392 211266 (option 1 for appointments) and arrange a telephone consultation with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.
Please allow at least 8 weeks before you travel - At your first appointment the nurse will discuss your travel plans including which countries and areas you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
The practice nurse will then arrange subsequent appointments as required to actually receive any necessary vaccinations.
These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Below is an example of the timescales required for appointments
You are planning to travel w/c 31st August.
You should contact the practice w/c 6th July
Your telephone appointment with the practice nurse should be approx. w/c 27th July/ w/c 3rd August
Your appointment to receive any vaccinations you may need should be w/c 17th August or before.
*Please note dates above are only being used as example dates.

Please contact the surgery for latest vaccination prices.
Please note these prices can change between your enquiry and the time the vaccine is ordered.
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.
You may also require vaccines that the surgery is unable to administer.
