Prior to travelling abroad, it is important to establish which vaccinations may be required as early as possible, please follow the link for information on NHS travel vaccinations.
For information on which vaccinations you may need for your particular destination, please see Travel Health Pro.
We are unable to administer any travel vaccinations not available under the NHS - including rabies, hepatitis B, meningococcus ACWY, yellow fever, tick-borne encephalitis, Japanese B encephalitis - you will need to organise these independently through one of the many local private travel clinics.
Travel vaccinations that are available under the NHS include DTP (diphtheria, tetanus, polio), hepatitis A, cholera and typhoid, please contact the surgery at least 8 weeks before you travel to check which vaccinations will need arranging.
We recommend that all travellers arrange travel health insurance.

Please note, the surgery is not able to organise prescriptions for private medicines such as diamox, that may sometimes be recommended by travel websites for trips involving high altitude environments. You will need to approach your preferred private travel clinic to obtain a prescription for these types of medicines.
