Do you need vaccinations?

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to contact an organisation such as MASTA to establish what you need.  This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

Once you know which vaccines you need please contact the practice. The reception staff will make an appointment Monday to Thursday with a nurse - ideally this should be 6 weeks prior to departure.

Some vaccines are available free on the NHS (e.g. Typhoid & Tetanus) but others can only be offered privately. We can only offer the NHS vaccines.

Anti Malarial medication can be prescribed by one of the doctors. Please make a routine appointment to discuss the most appropriate medication for your destination. We can either dispense the tablets to you or issue a private prescription at a cost of £9.99 (the cost of the prescription is waived if the medication is obtained from us).

Payment for all these services is required in advance. We accept payment by cheque, card or electronic bank transfer.
