Travel Health

Our nursing team is able to provide travel vaccinations and advice to protect you on holiday or whilst travelling abroad. The practice can give vaccinations against, Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Diphtheria, Polio and Tetanus only. Please be aware not all vaccinations are available on the NHS. If needed other vaccinations can be provided by a travel centre (details below).

Patients are requested to complete a travel form, ideally at least 6 weeks before departure, one form per person travelling. The completed form should be returned to reception. If your travel date falls before this period you may be asked to attend a travel clinic as appointments may not be available at the practice.

A nurse will then make a travel risk assessment and advise if vaccinations are required. Please allow 2 weeks for this to be completed. You will be contacted by reception and advised if an appointment is needed, either here at the practice and/or at a travel centre.

If you would like to research your risks when travelling abroad please visit www.nathnac.net where all vaccination advice, malaria risks and safe travel information can be found.

You can also check your own travel vaccination records via the patient access app, please ask reception for more information if needed.
