Travel Health

Due to the current high demand for nurse appointments we are unable to offer travel vaccinations at this time.

PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND IS ADVISING THAT ANYONE PLANNING ON TRAVELLING OVERSEAS THIS YEAR SHOULD SEEK HEALTH ADVICE FROM THEIR GP 6-8 WEEKS BEFORE THEY TRAVEL.

THIS IS TO HELP MINIMISE CHILDREN AND THEIR PARENTS ACQUIRING INFECTIONS ABROAD AND BECOMING UNWELL ON RETURN TO UK.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION BOOK AN APPOINTMENT AT THE SURGERY ON 0208 478 1366 WITH THE PRACTICE NURSE 6-8 WEEKS BEFORE YOU TRAVEL.

Further information regarding travel health can be found from the National Travel Health Network and Centre on: www.nathnac.org/travel/.

TRAVEL ADVICE

Our nurses can provide travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.

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 have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Select the region you are travelling to find out more.

Travel Vaccination Prices

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.
