Travel Assessment Form
We offer a full travel advice and immunisation service. If you are travelling abroad please complete and submit the travel form in plenty of time (we recommend 6-8 weeks) before your journey.
Your form will then be assessed by one of our Practice Nurses who will look at your vaccination record and the requirements for your travel destination. You will then be contacted by the practice to arrange a 30 minute travel consultation, which depending on your destinations requirements may include travel vaccines.

Do you need vaccinations?
Our Nurses can provide comprehensive travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.

Travel Vaccine Prices
Travel advice is covered by the NHS; however some vaccinations and prescriptions are only available privately. Payment for non-NHS services must be made at the first travel appointment.
The following vaccines are immediately available in the surgery:
NHS: Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio, Hepatitis A, Typhoid
Non-NHS: Hepatitis B (adult) £25 per dose (usually 3 or 4 required), Rabies £55 per dose (usually 3 required)
The following vaccines can be obtained by private prescription and a charge of £25 is payable to the surgery for each visit to administer. The cost of the vaccine is also payable to the chemist. You will be required to obtain the necessary vaccines and pay the pharmacy separately for these and return them to the practice for administration.
Hepatitis B (child)Meningitis ACWY, Japanese Encephalitis, Tick-borne Encephalitis.
Vaccines must be stored between 2 and 8 degrees in a refrigerator; the ideal way to do this is to hand them in to the practice as soon as possible.
All anti-malaria medications are provided privately. If recommended a private prescription will be issued at a cost of £15 and the cost of the medication will be payable to the pharmacy.
Yellow Fever vaccination is not provided in the surgery but available from specialist travel clinics.
