If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to discuss this with the practice nurse at least 6 weeks in advance of your planned date of travel . The practice nurse will then contact you to make an appointment to commence the vaccinations. If this 6 week notice period is not given the practice may not be able to offer the vaccination.
Some travel vaccinations are stocked by our medical centre and some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because travel vaccination is not included in the services provided by the NHS and is therefore a chargeable service. Please enquire further with the practice nurse.
