Please note that our nurses no longer provide travel advice over the phone from January 2019.
The patients can book in with the Practice Nurses to receive TETANUS, HEPATITIS A and TYPHOID Boosters – as these vaccines ARE provided by the NHS for Public Health Services – all Travel health advice and other vaccines must be provided by a private travel clinic.
Anyone travelling abroad who wishes to know about travel needs to go to a Private Travel Clinic:

You can request a printout of the vaccine record that we hold in the surgery on the electronic notes – this may not include all of the vaccines you have received or vaccines that may be recorded in your paper notes.
If you have complicated medical conditions – you could book in with your GP to discuss your health in regards to travel. However – this is not a ‘Travel appointment’ and deals with your health, rather than the fact that you are travelling to a specific place.
