Travel Advice and immunisations from 1st May 2016global air travel

From 1st May 2016 there will be a change in the provision of travel advice and immunisations at this surgery.

We will only be providing travel immunisations that are free on the NHS.  The NHS vaccines are:  Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio and any combined vaccine that has one of these disease protections in it.

We will continue to provide a travel service to our patients as per our NHS duty of care.  However we can only do this if you return a travel form at least 6 weeks prior to travel.  This is so that you can complete the full course of any recommended vaccines.  If it is out of this time frame you should contact a Travel Clinic. 

We do not provide courses of Hepatitis B for travel, Japanese Encephalitis, Meningitis ACWY, Rabies or Yellow Fever - you will need to go to a Travel Clinic as these are non NHS vaccines. 

If you need anti-malaria prophylaxis, you should obtain this from a pharmacy or Travel Clinic. 

Also, when going on holiday, remember to be aware of sun precautions and to use high factor sun creams to protect your skin.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:

Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia

Travel Health Questionnaire

Please complete a travel form and one of the nurses will contact you about what precautions you might need to take.  You must do this at least 6 weeks prior to travelling or the nurse will not have enough time to provide you with any travel advice and you will need to attend a travel clinic.
