Travel Assessment

Our trained nurses offer a full travel advice and immunisation service to our registered patients.

If you or any of your group are not registered with us, you will need to speak to your registered GP practice, or consider registering with us if you are eligible to do so.

To arrange for a free appointment, click on the link opposite to download, complete and return our travel assessment form.

We need one form for each patient who is travelling, regardless of their age.

See here for more information about how to return your form.

Once we have received your form, we will contact you to arrange the appointment. Please only contact us if you have not heard from us after 2 weeks

Do you need vaccinations?

Please arrange your initial travel appointment at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible.  Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require several doses, over several weeks.

Travel Vaccination Prices

Travel advice is covered by the NHS.  The initial assessment appointment and all advice we give is free of charge to our registered patients.  

Some vaccinations for travel purposes are also provided free of charge, as they are covered by the NHS.

However many vaccinations for travel, and also prescriptions for travel medications including antimalarials and medications for altitude sickness, are not covered by the NHS and therefore charges apply.  Payment for non-NHS services must be made in advance.

The following vaccines are immediately available in the surgery:

NHS: Diphtheria (free), Tetanus (free), Polio (free), Hepatitis A (free), Typhoid (free)

Non-NHS: Hepatitis B (adult) £55 per dose (usually 3 or 4 required), Hepatitis B (child) £35 per dose (usually 3 or 4 required), Rabies £60 per dose (usually 3 required), Meningitis ACWY £75 per dose (usually single dose), Japanese Encephalitis £90 per dose (2 required)

Yellow fever and Tick-borne Encephalitis vaccinations are not provided in the surgery but are available from specialist travel clinics.

Please note that vaccination prices and availability are subject to change.
