Travel Information

Travel Health Questionnaire

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please print and fill out the travel questionnaire and either return to the surgery reception or email to [email protected]

The travel nurse will review the questionnaire and you will be contacted by reception within 14 working days to make an appointment if necessary. Reception will NOT be able to answer questions regarding travel. This will be carried out at your initial appointment with the travel nurse.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below. Please check this information before your appointment so you have prior knowledge of what you may need with activities/area travelling to.

It is important you hand in the travel questionairre at least 8 weeks before you travel. Your initial appointment must be at least 6 weeks before your trip 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.

Some vaccines are free on NHS. Private vaccinations will not be available from the surgery so you will need to seek assistance from a private travel clinic. We cannot provide information about which private vaccines you may require, or which clinics to use, so please ensure you make suitable arrangements to receive this information.

Please note we are NOT a Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.

Important Updates

Please wear a face covering (e.g. scarf, homemade mask) when visiting the surgery for all appointments, medication collection, and sample returns you make. Please see our News Post for further information about Coronavirus.

 

Please DO NOT phone or email to ask about the COVID Vaccine. We will update this website and our Facebook page with details as we proceed with our vaccination programme. We will contact patients on an individual basis with an invitation when we have details of the clinics confirmed. For more information, please see our Frequently Asked Questions.
