JOURNEY TO HEALTH
This is a local travel option for patients who cannot get to doctors or hospital appointments.
When planning a trip abroad it is often easy to forget essential precautions. Please download and fill out the above linked form and bring it to reception, one of the practice nurses will contact you a month to six weeks before departure and she will advise you about vaccinations required. Remember that she often has no time to take a complicated phone call during busy surgery times. Some charges may apply for travel services not covered by the NHS.
There is information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make the 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.
