We are able to provide a full range of travel vaccinations and the surgery is a designated Yellow Fever Centre. Immunisations are given by the nurse. Some vaccinations need to be done as part of a course, so it is helpful to plan ahead.
You do not need to be a registered patient at the Surgery to use this service. If you are planning to travel abroad, please complete a travel health questionnaire which is available to download or collected from the care navigation team .
Q: Why do I need to complete a travel health questionnaire?
A: This provides the nurse with your history and travel itinerary prior to your appointment. It enables her to assess your vaccine requirements and the specific travel health advice needed to keep you well.
Please complete our Online Travel Risk Assessment Form in as much detail as you can so that the Practice Nurse can do a comprehensive assessment of your travel health needs and vaccination requirements prior to your appointment. When you have completed the form please hand it in to the care navigation team , send it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org but please ensure that you book a Travel Appointment with the Nurse. Please allow at least 2 working days between providing the completed assessment form and seeing the Nurse for the travel appointment to allow her time to assess your particular needs.
Ideally we need to see you 6 to 8 weeks prior to your planned departure in case a series of vaccinations are required, however some travel vaccinations can be administered up to the time of departure and we will try our best to accommodate your needs. Due to a significant demand for nurse appointments we may not always be able to accommodate last minute requests.
During the appointment the Nurse will address travel health and safety awareness as well as administer any necessary vaccinations.
Please note that some vaccinations and anti-malaria tablets are not provided by the NHS and will therefore be subject to fees.
Private Travel Clinic
Anyone can access our private travel clinic whether a registered patient or not.
The private travel clinic is held on a Friday afternoon. The clinic is run by our specialist travel nurse who has extensive experience and training. We ask that, prior to your appointment, you complete a travel questionnaire giving details of previous vaccinations, destinations etc. This will enable the nurse to assess your requirements.
