TRAVEL ADVICE

Foreign travel

We are able to arrange most vaccinations required for foreign travel. Please consult the practice sufficiently early.

We need at least seven weeks prior to departure to allow an appropriate interval between vaccinations if needed, and ensure that you are offered appropriate advice.

Please note that there could be a charge for some vaccinations and drugs for infection prophylaxis for travel purposes, as they may not be available free on the NHS.

Travel questionnaire

You can save time by downloading and completing the travel vaccination questionnaire using Microsoft Word.

Please download the travel questionnaire by clicking here.

Then either:

a) Open the form in Microsoft Word and complete the form. Then send the form using the Microsoft 'Send Email' option which should attach the form to an email, or save the form to your computer and attach to an email and send.
