Our Practice Nurses run travel advice clinics on a regular basis. If you require this service, please tell the receptionist when you book so that they can give you an appropriate appointement.
Our Practice Nurse will provide the advice and guidance that you need to ensure a trouble free and healthy holiday.
Please be aware that many immunisations can take up to 14 days to be effective. Some immunisations are on prescription and must be ordered beforehand. Some immunisations require a course of injections over several weeks. We would therefore ask you to come to the surgery in advance of your initial appointment, which should be at least 8 weeks prior to the expected date of travel.
The NHS does not provide all vaccinations so there may be a charge for some.
