Vaccinations

Travel Clinic

Our Nurses offer vaccinations and advice about foreign travel. Please complete the Travel Vaccination and Consent Form and hand in to the treatment area at least 8 weeks before your travel date. An appointment will then be booked for a Nurse to call you and discuss what vaccinations are required (if any) and they will book the appointment for these to be administered if needed.

Please note that not all vaccinations are available on the NHS and there may be a charge for some. We may also have to order in your vaccinations if we do not already have them in stock. Remember you might find a great last-minute holiday – but we can’t do a last minute vaccination!
