Travelling Abroad and Vaccinations

Are you Travelling Abroad Anytime Soon?
It is your responsibility to check with the embassy of every country you will be travelling to and through, what their rules are for taking medicines with you.

are happy to give you a print out of a list of the medications which we prescribe for you.

YOU will need to check with a pharmacist what each of you medicines contain.

Don’t forget to ask about:

  • All prescribed medicines (including tablets, syrups, injectables, creams,patches etc)
  • All medicines which you buy over the counter from a chemist or supermarket

Travel Vaccinations

The practice offers a travel vaccination service to those patients wishing to travel abroad.  You can contact reception who will arrange for an appointment with one of our Practice Nurses to discuss what vaccinations you will need.

Please note that we are not able to provide all vaccinations (for example Yellow Fever or Tuberculosis vaccinations).  Most of the larger Chemists have specialised travel clinics can arrange these vaccinations.

Unfortunately, only the following vaccinations can be carried out without charge for the purposes of travel, on the NHS:

  • Diphtheria
  • Polio and tetanus (combined booster)
  • Typhoid
  • Hepatitis A
  • Cholera. 

All other travel vaccinations are deemed by the NHS to be private and are therefore chargeable by the Practice.  This includes the Hepatitis A and B combination vaccine. We can however provide the Hepatitis A vaccine free, charging only for the Hepatitis B vaccine.

You can see a list of our current charges for vaccinations by clicking here.

If you have a printer, our holiday Vaccination Request form can be printed off here – we need this prior to any appointments.
