If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
It is important to make this initial 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.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:

Changes to our Service
Our Nurses are implementing a new scheme regarding the prescribing of the contraceptive pill . We hope that this will make life easier for our patients - if you are eligible you will be able to receive a year’s supply of your Pill.
There is a form for you to complete (you can download it here) Once completed please bring the form into the surgery. At the same time please record your height, weight and BP on our machine in reception. Your form will be reviewed by the nurse, who will decide if you are suitable for the scheme.
If you are deemed suitable, the nurse will arrange for a year's supply of your contraceptive pill. You do not need to see the nurse at this point, but of course if you would like to see her to discuss this our Patient Co-Ordinators will be happy to arrange an appointment for you.
If the nurse feels you are not suitable she will discuss this with you, and you will continue to receive your Pills at six monthly intervals as previously.
If you would like to discuss this further, please call us. Our Patient Co-Ordinators will be happy to help, or arrange a phone consultation for you with the Practice Nurse.
