We run regular travel advice and vaccination clinics for patients who are planning to travel abroad.
We are also a yellow fever vaccination centre, and we will see both our own patients and those who are not registered with us.
Patients who are not registered with us will need to complete a travel form, and bring or send the completed form to us BEFORE their first appointment.
Travel forms are available from reception, or you can view and print one HERE.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many appointments will I need?
The first appointment for a particular trip will last 20 minutes. You may need subsequent appointments, depending on your itinerary and vaccination requirements for the trip.
When are travel appointments available?
Please contact reception to find out when appointments are available. Most appointments can be booked at a time to suit you, including first thing in the morning and late afternoon/evening.
How far ahead of any trip should I make the first appointment?
As soon as possible - ideally when you book your annual leave time off from work. We can do appointments close to the departure date, but under these circumstances there may not be time enough for any vaccinations to take effect.
How long will each appointment last?
The first appointment for any one trip will last 20 minutes. Each subsequent appointment should only take 10 minutes.
Will I have to pay for any of the vaccinations?
Most vaccines are available to registered NHS patients without charge, but some specialist vaccines will incur a charge. Full details are available on our pricing schedule - Click Here to see it.
What payment forms are accepted?
Cash, cheque or credit card.
I am not registered with the practice. Are there any special instructions for me?
You will need a 20-minute initial appointment and you will be registered as a private patient. You will need to arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment so that we can register you. We will make a charge for the initial consultation (see our pricing schedule). If you wish to have other vaccines, we can provide them but you will be charged for each vaccine given.
Where can I find out more about what vaccinations I might need?
