If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include 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:
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 must be ordered.
Some travel vaccines 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.

GPs DO NOT provide an occupational health service as part of their NHS responsibility nor can they provide this service to people even if it is funded by the individual. Unfortunately we cannot offer Hepatitis B vaccination.
Under Health & Safety Regulations, your employer has a duty to provide a safe working environment and, therefore, appropriate health advice for those at risk of infection with hepatitis B.
We advise you to contact your employer who will be able to make arrangements with an occupational health provider for the provision of any immunisation which you may require following an appropriate assessment of the risk to which you are exposed. The following letter could be presented to your employer explaining their responsibility, please download and fill in your name to present to your employer.
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.
This surgery is participating in a scheme to improve care for patients with multiple medical problems, who may have many services helping to care for them and who are thought to be at risk of needing hospital care in the next year or so. The aim of the scheme is to help those patients enjoy life as much as they can and ensure that, whenever possible, care is provided at home. We know that this is what most people want.
The first step of the scheme is to ensure that our records of your contact details are up-to-date and that we have details of family members or carers that might need to be contacted when the patient has need. To help us do this please ensure we have your up-to-date contact details.
One of our GPs or Practice Nurses will review your medical details and agree a care plan with every identified patient, this maybe by telephone, appointment at the surgery or a home visit. This work will not reduce the number of appointments available in clinics.
Thank you for your help in making this scheme a success.
