If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the 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
The Travel clinic is usually held on a Thursday afternoon. Angie Morgan is our travel health nurse lead. Yvonne Lee and Hannah Murphy are also travel health trained.
It is important to make an initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as further appointments may be required with the nurse to receive a course of vaccinations. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Vaccine schedules need to be completed at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
To be able to give appropriate travel health advice, the nurses needs to know: Your destination, length of stay and any high risk activities planned whilst abroad. Please give this information to the receptionist when you book your appointment. Alternatively, complete the form below and return to the surgery in advance of your appointment.
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.
Please note we are NOT a Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.
