Our practice nurses will advise and administer routine adult vaccinations.
For a lot of foreign travel, additional protection is highly recommended. Please come in good time and tell us your travel details. Where there are several destinations or a complex itinerary we advise that you book an appointment to see the nurse as soon as possible or at least 3-4 months before your intended departure. We will examine your records and let you know what is advisable for your intended destination, as we would like you to return from your trip in the best possible health. There may be a charge for holiday vaccinations and the list of such charges is on display in the surgery.
If you require a travel appointment to discuss vaccinations please print the form below and either
hand it in to reception;
fax it to us on 01376 552 417;
or post it to us for the attention of the practice nurse;
Once we have received your travel assessment form, a nurse will review the information and contact you to arrange a nurse appointment for the vaccinations if deemed necessary.
