Travel Clinic (Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre) - we offer a comprehensive foreign travel immunisation service including Yellow Fever. Ideally you should arrange an appointment six weeks before travelling as some vaccinations are a course of three separate injections.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please complete the online Travel Health Questionnaire below. Please provide as much information as possible including which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
The Practice will then contact you to inform you of vaccinations that may be required and to arrange the necessary appointments with a practice nurse.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important that you complete the Travel Health Questionnaire at least 8-10 weeks before you travel as certain vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
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.

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
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.
Due to problems with supply there is a shortage of the flu vaccine for patients aged over 65 years. This is currently being addressed locally and nationally and we will notify you when the vaccine becomes available.
The Open Access Clinics due to be held on Saturday 13th & Saturday 27th October 2018 are currently for eligible patients aged between 18 & 64 years only.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience
