We run the following nurse led clinics – please ask at reception for an appointment.
Please visit www.fitfortravel.nhs.net to find out what vaccinations you are likely to need. If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse in the travel clinic to discuss your travel arrangements at least 6 weeks prior to travel. This appointment will include discussion on 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
PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU ARE GOING ON A PILGRIMAGE TO LE HAJJ PLEASE ALERT RECEPTION AS WE ARE NOT ABLE TO GIVE ALL VACCINATIONS, THANK YOU.

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. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate travel appointments with less than 6 weeks notice and would advise you seek a Travel Clinic if this is the case.
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.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
