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 which vaccinations are required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the NHS Fit for Travel website.
It is important to make your appointment as early as possible – at least 6 weeks before you travel – as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse to receive the vaccinations.
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.
Travel Vaccination Charges
Please note: As from 1 st November 2017 Antimalarial prescriptions for travelling
abroad will no longer be available on the NHS.
We can issue a Private prescription or you can speak with a Pharmacist as some tablets can be bought directly over the counter.
This has been the standard procedure for London and the rest of the country for many years.
