Travel Vaccinations

If you are planning to travel abroad it is advisable to have a travel risk assessment. We are able to provide free NHS travel vaccinations. If you have more complex travel health needs or require private vaccinations, you will be asked to attend an external private travel health clinic.

In order to have a travel risk assesment with one of our practice nurses, you must first complete this form. If you don’t have a printer, you can come into the surgery to pick up a paper copy.

Once you have completed the risk assesment form, please return this to reception. A member of the practice nursing team will contact you within two weeks to arrange an appointment if this is required.

During your travel appointment with a practice nurse, your travel health requirements will be discussed and required NHS travel vaccinations will be given. If you require private travel vaccinations, or have more complex travel needs, you will be directed to an external private travel health clinic.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

Use this service if:

  • you think you might have coronavirus
  • in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus – see coronavirus advice for travellers and a list of high risk countries on nhs.uk
  • you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.

In Scotland call your GP or NHS 24 on 111 out of hours.
In Wales call 111 (if available in your area) or 0845 46 47.
In Northern Ireland call 111.
