If you are thinking of travelling outside the UK, start preparing for your trip, especially long trips, at least 1 month before you go.
You don't always need vaccinations to travel abroad. If you do, the type of travel jabs you need depends on which country you're visiting and what you're doing. Please be aware that some of the vaccinations require more than one dose and some do not become effective until a number of weeks after the injection.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, please visit AccuRx.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 1 month 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.
Our nurses will then review your form and advise our administrative team which vaccinations are required.
Contact the surgery after 48 hours
Patient's are advised to contact the surgery after 48 hours of initial form submission to find out if any vaccinations are required - at which point they can book an appointment to have these done.
