Travel vaccinations global
There are many places you can get great travel advice – we suggest you start by checking the recommendations for your travel destination at www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk
At the surgery we can provide you with the following NHS vaccines only:
• diphtheria, polio and tetanus booster
• hepatitis A
For any complex or high risk travel, or if you require vaccines not available on the NHS, you will need to book a travel advice consultation with one of the local travel clinics. These clinics provide the full range of private immunisations and comprehensive advice.

Previous Vaccination history
Our administration team can provide you with an up to date record of your previous vaccination history but please allow 3 working days for us to process your request, or you can register for online access to your records .
If you are on regular medication, please ensure your annual review is up to date, and that you have requested adequate supplies prior to travel.
We regret that we cannot issue more than 3 months of medication in advance, and if you travel is for longer than this, you will have to access further medication while you are away.
Your doctor, the clinical pharmacist or the practice nurses are happy to review with you any complex health or medication needs prior to travel to ensure you are as prepared as possible. We cannot do this in emergency appointments, so please book early.Travel Vaccinations
If you have recently registered with us, it can take up to 10 weeks for your notes to arrive here from your previous practice, so you will need to bring with you details of any vaccinations you may previously have had. This is so you are not given any vaccinations you do not need.
