Travel Services

We offer Travel advice and vaccinations in line with our GMS contract only for specialist advice or vaccinations, outside this remit you will have to find an alternative provider.

All requests for travel advice and vaccinations need to be received at the surgery 8 weeks before the day of travel. This is to ensure we have the time to read process and advise you correctly before offering you an appointment for eligible NHS travel services.

We ask for 8 weeks notice to ensure that we are able to find an appointment within the time scale as our nurse pre-bookable appointments can be booked this far in advance and so the travel clinics can be fully booked.

Please ensure you have your forms to us in good time to avoid disappointment and charges from other providers. We will accept no liability for the cost of vaccination for patients who fail to provide us with 8 weeks notice or fully completed forms.  

The forms can be downloaded below and submitted to the practice via our email address.

Before travelling overseas, it is important to be aware of the possible health risks and how to prevent problems, or minimise the chances of them occurring. Most importantly, you should know:

  • whether there are any specific health risks in the country you are travelling to for which you need to take precautions - for example, malaria
  • how to avoid becoming ill when you are abroad
  • what to do if you do become ill when you are abroad
  • how to get emergency medical treatment when you are abroad
