If you're travelling, you can sometimes be hit with nasty health-related surprises abroad, from diarrhoea to hepatitis, malaria or even rabies. Whether you've considered your health risks or not, the reality is that some countries carry a higher risk of certain infectious disease. So please don't be caught out on your trip!
www.travelvaccinewise.co.uk is a website full of useful health related information for anyone planning a trip abroad. Find out about some of the travel related infectious diseases and advice you'll need to help avoid them. There is also a handy travellers' checklist.
If you need any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please complete a travel form (these can be downloaded below or picked up from our reception at the surgery) and hand into reception. Someone from the surgery will be in touch to make an appointment within 2 weeks of receiving the form.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 5 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Follow-up appointments will be made as appropriate. Please note any forms that are received with less than 5 weeks before a departure date will not be able to be seen at the surgery, we would therefore advise you to make an appointment with one of the local private travel clinics in the area for last minute 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.
