Travel Information

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. 

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Europe Europe & RussiaNorth America North America
Central America Central AmericaSouth America & Antarctica South America & Antarctica
Caribbean CaribbeanAfrica Africa
Middle East Middle EastCentral Asia Central Asia
East Asia East AsiaAustralasia  Australasia and Pacific

 

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.

Travelling in Europe

If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.

The following information will need to be provided by the patient:

- Name and passport number

- Dates of travel to each destination, including flight details

- The name of the prescribed drug(s)

- Total quantity and dose needed for travel

- If the medication will be required DURING the flight

THERE WILL BE A £25 ADMINISTRATION FEE

When supplying a Travel Claims form, please ensure that you attach a separate sheet of paper with the following information:

- Dates of the trip (departure and arrival) 

- Reason why trip is cancelled

Without this information, processing the paperwork may be delayed.
