NHS Travel Vaccinations
There is currently a national shortage of certain vaccines which is affecting all GP surgeries and travel clinics, our Nurse will therefore only be able to provide you with vaccines we have in stock.
National Shortage of: Hep A, Hep B
We are continually updated by our vaccine suppliers and will keep patients updated.
We ask that you complete our Travel Form and forward it to the Reception Team at least 8 weeks prior to your travel date, our Nurse can then assess your requirements, advise and vaccinate.
An appointment with us is dependent on whether you have provided sufficient notice as requested & we are able to obtain the required vaccinations in time from our suppliers. National supply shortages or late form submissions will result in patients needing to obtain vaccinations at a private clinic where you can discuss the relevant fees / charges relating to your chosen travel destination
We do not use emergency appointments for travel vaccinations & we cannot guarantee offering vaccinations if you are travelling at short notice as some travel health requirements have long lead times
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
Not all vaccinations are provided free of charge on the NHS - some vaccinations may need to be sourced privately by you. Private clinics can be found via an internet search
