If you are travelling abroad, you may require extra immunisations and injections. In order that we can organise to give you these, we need to know the full details of your travel plans. We therefore ask that you complete a travel questionnaire (this can also be collected from the surgery). Our qualified Practice Nurses will then decide what vaccinations and advice you will need and advise you to book an appointment.
Please note that we need advance notice of your travel plans : if you telephone less than 4 weeks of your planned travel date, we may have to redirect you to another travel service such as MASTA.
A fee is payable for some vaccinations required for travel purposes. Details of these charges are available at the Surgery.

Holiday Travel Vaccinations
If you are travelling abroad it is sensible to make provision for any vaccinations well in advance of your expected date of travel, if possible a minimum of four weeks.
