Travel

“ The act of going from one place to another or changing location from current position to another. ”

Travel Information

If you require any health advice or vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. The nurse will need to know which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations or other precautions are required.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse to complete the course of vaccinations. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Most travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because travel vaccination is not included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore is a chargeable service.

Vaccination Charges

From April 2015, there are likely to be charges for ALL TRAVEL VACCINES as our contract with NHS ENGLAND is changing and travel vaccines are no longer free for anybody
