From 1st April 2019 our Travel Health Service is changing:
We will continue to offer our high quality travel vaccination and advice service including NHS provided vaccines, travel certificates £15 and Fit to Fly Letters £25.
Unfortunately we are no longer able to offer any private travel vaccinations:
including Rabies, Japanese B encephalitis, Meningitis ACWY and Hepatitis B (single). This is due to increases in related costs. These vaccines are still available from private providers and details of some private travel clinics are listed below for your information. We are not able to endorse or recommend any specific clinic.
We still offer Hepatitis A, typhoid, tetanus, diphtheria, polio, MMR, combined Hep A and B vaccines, combined Hep A and Typhoid vaccines.
If you wish to book an appointment for travel advice please complete a Travel Questionnaire and book an appointment via reception.
Kirsten Taylor, Practice Nurse Team Leader
Please remember that you should make your first appointment for vaccinations at a private travel clinic as soon as possible and you should allow at least 6-8 weeks for all your vaccination prior to travel. For more information read our Travel Appointment Policy and our: Travel Advice Leaflet June 2019
Please remember to take with you to your appointment proof of vaccinations already received if you have them.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 to 8 weeks before you travel. Your second appointment should be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccinations are not provided by the NHS and therefore there it is important to make an appointment as soon as possible with a private Travel Clinic.
