Travel Information

If you plan to travel abroad this year, you will need to make sure you have the necessary vaccinations or malaria cover. Some vaccinations do incur a cost and some need to be ordered specifically on a named patient basis, therefore payment is required before placing a order. Please read through the following information and book an appointment with the practice nurse at least 4 weeks before your travel date to discuss your travel arrangements and whether any vaccinations will be required. Please print off and fill in the travel questionnaire found below and remember to bring it to your appointment.

Please note that there may be a charge for some of the vaccinations or malaria tablets. A number of these are not included in the services provided by the NHS, so they will be ordered privately and there will therefore be an additional cost involved.
