If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
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.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
The practice will complete private forms for patients however, there is usually a fee as this work is extra to that funded by the NHS and has to be completed outside of NHS time. These forms can include; fitness to drive, pre-employment questionnaires, insurance reports, etc. Generally the GPs need four to six weeks to complete private forms and letters due to the volume of requests that we receive. If a form or letter is needed more urgently than this we will try to meet a tighter deadline. However, this may not be possible as we always prioritise NHS work.
Where it is available the Practice follows the guidance of the British Medical Association for the charges to be made for these services.
If you have an enquiry about a non NHS form, or would like a quote for completing a non NHS form, please contact the practice and ask to speak to Tanya. Please do not make an appointment with a GP for completion of a private form or to ask for a letter unless you have been advised to do so by one of our Administrators.
Payment must be received before we can send your form off or give it to you – we are only able to accept cheques or cash.
