Before you travel or book an appointment, check out the Fit For Travel website where further information can be obtained relating to your holiday/travel destination.

If an appointment is required to update your vaccinations please call our care coordinators to book an appointment with the practice nurse at least 6 weeks before your date of travel.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

Please note only the vaccines listed below are available on NHS Prescriptions:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus
  • Polio

Travel Form

You can also complete the online Travel form and send this to us (this must be submitted prior to your appointment).

Healthy Travel Leaflet

You may find the following leaflet helpful when making your travel arrangements.

Malaria

Malaria is a serious tropical disease spread by mosquitoes. If it isn’t diagnosed and treated promptly, it can be fatal.

A single mosquito bite is all it takes for someone to become infected.

Please download our useful leaflet on Mosquito Advice

Hepatitis immunisation

Immunisation against infectious Hepatitis (Hepatitis A) is available free of charge on the NHS in connection with travel abroad. However Hepatitis B is not routinely available free of charge and therefore you may be charged for this vaccination when requested in connection with travel abroad.
