From 1st November 2019, the surgery can no longer provide certain Travel Vaccinations. Please read this leaflet for more information on the services we can/cannot provide and who provides vaccinations that aren't provided by the NHS. If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to fill in one of our Travel Questionnaire forms, once this is complete, you must then arrange a Telephone Consultation with one of our Practice Nurse team. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial telephone appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. Please click here for more information.
Are you travelling abroad anytime soon? If so, please read the following information.
YOU will need to check with the embassy of every country you will be travelling to and through, what their rules are for taking medicines with you.
WE are happy to give you a print out of a list of the medications which we prescribe for you.
YOU will need to check with a pharmacist what each of you medicines contain don’t forget to ask about:
• All prescribed medicines (including tablets, syrups, injectables, creams & patches etc)
• All medicines which you buy over the counter from the chemist or supermarket
Not doing these checks could inadvertently lead to problems at your destination, as certain prescription medications (and even some over the counter medications) are either banned or classed as controlled drugs in other countries.
