Travel Information

Patients planning trips abroad who may require any advice and/or vaccinations must complete our Travel Risk Assessment form. You will then be in contact by a member of staff to book a telephone appointment with one of our practice nurses at their earliest availability.

If you have received any vaccinations at another surgery or travel clinic, please bring your own travel vaccination record to the appointment.

Please note that some travel vaccines are not included in the services provided by the NHS and will result in a fee being charged. For information on this, please visit our Non-NHS Work Page
