These clinics are by appointment with our practice nurses. Please ensure that you allow enough time to get an appointment and to receive your vaccination before travelling. Please also note that some vaccinations are not covered by the NHS and the costs will need to be met by the patient. Currently these are: Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis, Yellow Fever (given at designated centres only)
More information is available on the above “Travel Vaccinations” tab.
You may be referred to this clinic after seeing a doctor with the practice for minor procedures.
If the doctor thinks you require referral to hospital or other specialist service for further advice or treatment the doctor will discuss this with you. The doctor may refer you using the current Choose and Book system. This will enable you to make your own appointment at a time and date and place that best suits you. If you are unsure how the system works, please ask a member of the admin team, who will be happy to assist. Please remember to cancel this appointment if you no longer need to attend.
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:
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.
