Travel Information

When travelling abroad it is essential to investigate the health risks associated with your trip. You should seek advice at least 8 weeks before you travel due to time frames needed between vaccines and your body developing an immune response to the vaccine to provide you with protection.

Our practice does not offer speciality travel clinics as this is not a part of standard NHS services. However, we do offer the NHS vaccines. The NHS covers the cost of these vaccines which are:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Tetanus
  • Diphtheria
  • Polio
  • MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)

For travel vaccines other than those above, advice or malaria prophylactic medication you need to attend a specialist travel service, these services are private and therefore subject to charges.

Where to go for Non NHS travel vaccinations

Appointments can be made online through your chosen website or by visiting one of the local travel clinics.

If you have more complex travel requirements you could get advice from a private travel service, you will be charged a consultation fee but this is often reimbursed against the cost of injections. You will need to know what vaccines you have had already so ask our Receptionists to print out the immunisations that we have recorded for you.
