Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please complete the travel questionnaire which you can then submit online. This will include which countries and areas within these countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. The nurses will then look at your notes and document on your records what vaccines you require. Please phone the surgery about a week later to find out this information and book an appointment.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this 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.
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.
