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.
Select the region you are travelling to find out more.
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.

The recommendations made by the practice are based on the information you supply us with and the information contained in your NHS medical records. We cannot be held responsible for any problems caused by any omissions in your vaccination history, you must also ensure we receive information about any vaccinations you may have received (e.g. at private clinics), that may not be in your NHS medical records. If your travel plans change you must inform us so a re-assessment of your vaccination requirements can be amended.
