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 over the telephone including which countries and areas you are visiting to determine and what vaccinations are required.
The practice nurse will then arrange subsequent appointments as required to actually receive any necessary vaccinations that are available under the NHS.
