We always recommend that you make an appointment with our Practice Nurse at least 8 weeks before you travel abroad. At this appointment, she will be able to provide you with important and up to date travel health advice, check your immunisation status and provide you with any necessary vaccinations and/or boosters for the country you are visiting. The earlier you receive your vaccinations, the greater the immunity level you will have against the respective diseases.
Unfortunately, not all travel vaccinations are available on the NHS and we have to make a charge to the patient for the cost and administration of these vaccinations. Please see the attached list of travel vaccinations that are not available on the NHS and their respective fee.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS TO PATIENT
2. Please telephone the surgery to book your travel advice appointment with our Nurse, 3 days after you have submitted your completed Travel Risk form. This will allow us adequate time to review what vaccinations and advice will be relevant to you.
3. At this appointment, our nurse will telephone you to provide travel advice and inform you if you require any travel vaccinations. She will also inform you of the cost of these vaccinations.
4. A further appointment will be made for you, if you require travel vaccinations.
5. You will be expected to pay for the full course of vaccinations prior to this appointment. The Practice reserves the right not to provide you with these vaccinations unless payment has been received in full. We accept payment by cash, cheque and credit/debit cards.
