The practice nurses will give advice on foreign travel and any other immunisations required.
A minimum of eight weeks’ notice is required. If you are unable to give this, you may wish to check whether we have an available appointment. If the nurses are fully booked you should be prepared to arrange your immunisation through a private travel clinic.
Not all travel vaccinations are available from the surgery at no cost; some drugs such as for malaria prophylaxis have to be purchased by the patient from a pharmacist (some on a private prescription – private prescriptions are charged at £10).
For Yellow Fever vaccination, which will incur a charge, you will need to visit a private travel clinic. These can be found by using the following website: https://nathnacyfzone.org.uk/search-centres
Useful travel websites
A public access website called 'Fit forTravel' provided by the NHS (Scotland) offers a wide range of Travel advice, including vaccinaton information. It gives travel health information for people travelling abroad from the UK.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) provide the very latest travel advice and guidance. Use the link below to access their website:
For anyone who is travelling overseas we ask them to complete the form below. This is important as you will provide our Nurse with information about your planned journey and this will help her to assess exactly which vaccinations you need or are recommended to have.
You can save time by downloading and completing the holiday vaccination questionnaire. Post it to the surgery and book a 20 minute travel appointment (per patient) with one of our practice nurses.
