It is vital that you allow as much time as possible (preferably 6 weeks) before your travel date to begin planning your vaccinations as some are only effective after a certain amount of time.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to collect a pack which contains important information about vaccinations as well as a questionnaire for you to complete concerning your travel plans. Alternatively, you can print the information from here.

Return the completed form to the surgery. The receptionist will then book a 15 minute telephone consultation for you with the Practice Nurse to discuss and finalise your vaccination plan and let you know the costs of the treatment. Once you have agreed this plan, she will make a suitable appointment for you to attend the surgery to receive your vaccinations.
Please note that payment is required at the time of attending for your vaccination and that we only accept cheque or cash.
