We no longer have capacity to give private travel advice and treatment and will now limit our travel medicine service to those vaccinations that are covered by the NHS. Patients travelling abroad are now directed to the NHS https://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home
To help us plan an appropriate travel health assessment and vaccination schedule, please print off and complete our travel questionnaire below. Return questionnaire to our reception staff and arrange a 20 minute appointment at least 6 weeks prior to departure.
Certain travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these will incur a charge at the Pharmacy. Reason being some vaccines are not included as an NHS service. There will also be an administration charge due to the Practice. Practice Nurse will discuss fees during your consultation.
