Visit our Travel Room for travel advice and information about vaccinations.
You don’t always need vaccinations if you’re travelling abroad. It’ll depend on where and when you’re travelling and what activities you plan to do.
The NHS recommends that travellers check the information on the website NaTHNaC provide a comprehensive guide to the immunisations required for each country and general advice. These websites include daily up dates on current issues effecting health, such as the Zika virus and yellow fever.
We can provide you with the vaccinations which are usually free on the NHS should you require them. We do not provide comprehensive travel advice at the practice.
If you require any other immunisations or advice, then please arrange to visit a private travel clinic that can offer you a full range of services and convenient appointment times.
Please allow enough time to request an appointment at the practice prior to your date of travel, or we may not be able to see you before you depart on your holiday.
If you need us to check your medical records to see which immunisations you have previously had, then please ask reception. If you need a printed copy of your immunisations there will be a small charge. Some patient records are still on paper so would need to be taken out of storage, please allow at least 2 weeks for us to check.
Remember if you previously had any immunisations at a private clinic, these will not be on your practice record, unless you have told us about these.
Pharmacists are also able to advise you on antimalarial medication.
