HOLIDAY TRAVEL

Foreign travel

We are able to arrange most vaccinations required for foreign travel. Please consult the practice sufficiently early.

We usually need at least six weeks prior to departure to allow an appropriate interval between vaccinations if needed, and ensure that you are offered appropriate advice.

Please note that, although most travel vaccinations are available from the surgery, some drugs such as for malaria prophylaxis have to be purchased by the patient from a pharmacist (some on a private prescription). Please note that not all vaccinations including drugs for prophylaxis of infections when travelling are not free of charge on the NHS.
