Due to increased demand for travel advice these forms will take up to 6 weeks to be processed. If you are travelling sooner than this you may need to use a commercial travel clinic service.
This will ensure that you are more likely to be fully vaccinated before you depart to your destination, we advise you attend to arrange your appointment at least six weeks before you travel.
Please note only the under noted vaccines are available on NHS Prescriptions:-
- Hepatitis A
Advice on Malaria will be given.
Immunisation against infectious Hepatitis (Hepatitis A) is available free of charge on the NHS in connection with travel abroad. However Hepatitis B is not routinely available free of charge and therefore you may be charged for this vaccination when requested in connection with travel abroad
If you wish a Travel Advice appointment please attend the Practice and request a Travel Advice Form (or download here). When completed this must be handed into the Practice reception desk, by yourself, (Posted or e-mailed forms are not accepted as your travel advice appointment is issued to you by the reception staff at the time you present your completed form).
This form must be completed as fully as possible and you must include a daytime contact telephone number so that the Practice Nurse or Doctor can contact you if they encounter any problems with your form.
The Travel advice appointments are only issued when we have received a completed form, once this has been received, you will be given a date by the receptionist to collect your prescription for your vaccines, and advised how to arrange to have your vaccination administered by the Nurse.
