Travel Risk Assessment

If you are travelling abroad please make sure you contact us in plenty of time to arrange any vaccinations that may be necessary. To help the Travel Nurses assess your travel needs it is important that they are in receipt of the assessment form before your appointment.

It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible – at least 6-10 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.

Please be aware that some vaccination programmes may require up to 3 months for schedules to be completed.

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. This can be confirmed with the practice nurse at the first appointment.

For further information, please see our Travel Room and Travel Fees page.
