Travel Clinic

Travel Immunisations

We are advised by NHSEI, BMA and RCGP that travel vaccinations remain a low clinical priority, set against the context of the wider pandemic NHS recovery, patient access, long term condition management and offering the Covid vaccination programme. However we recognise that they remain important to our patients. We will endeavour to do what we can, but given the wider demands on our time which are clinically urgent, you may be advised that the time window for your vaccinations is inconvenient for your travel plans. If we have no availability to accommodate your needs, we will signpost you to local private travel providers, who may also be able to serve any additional needs for e.g. Japanese encephalitis and tick-borne encephalitis; meningitis vaccines; rabies; tuberculosis (TB) and yellow fever.

If you are travelling and think you may need vaccinations, please visit https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/. Using their advice, please decide which vaccinations you wish to have.

You will then to speak to our receptionist and let them know your travel plans. They will take details and pass on to our pratice nurses who will then be able to offer the appropriate advice and let you know which vaccinations we are able to offer at the surgery. 

Please therefore allow a minimum of 6 weeks for them before you travel and note that certain vaccination regimes do need a month to complete.

For any vaccinations that are not available on the NHS, you will need to visit the travel clinic through www.travelhealthclinic.co.uk to receive them, and they will be chargeable.
