The standard guidance is to complete your vaccination course at least 6 weeks before departure therefore we ask that you complete a Travel Form as soon as you know you are intending to travel (these are available to download by clicking on the link below).
The nurse will use the information you provide to check your vaccination and medical history against the travel guidance for the area you will be visiting. New patients whose records have not yet been received may be asked to obtain this information from your previous practice as it would be unsafe for the nurse to make assumptions on what vaccinations you may have/have not already had.
We ask that you contact us one week after leaving your completed form to allow the nurses time to safely check your records in between their normal surgery sessions. Please be aware that you may require a double appointment and the next available routine nurse appointment will be offered.
We regret that we are unable to accept any travel vaccination requests if your planned travel is less than four weeks away.
For Private arrangements please see below:
