Please allow adequate time in order for the vaccine(s)/medication to be effective. Please note that there may be a charge for certain vaccines. You can ask about this at the time of booking your appointment. To book an appointment please telephone 01360 550339 and ask for an appointment with the Practice Nurse.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 10 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.

It is Practice Policy only to give results of medical tests to patients who are 16 or over and to the parents of those below this age.
Certain services such as private sick notes, insurance claim forms and some medical examinations such as HGV medicals are not covered by the NHS. These will be liable to a charge in line with BMA recommendations. Reception staff will advise you if a fee is due.
