If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 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.
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.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.

Examples of how Social Prescribing can help?
Why Social Prescribing
One in five GP appointments focuses on wider social needs, rather than acute medical issues. In areas of high deprivation, many GPs report that they spend significant amounts of time dealing with the consequences of poor housing, debt, stress and loneliness.
Social prescribing and community-based support is part of the NHS Long Term Plan’s commitment to make personalised care business as usual across the health and care system and to bring additional capacity into the multi-disciplinary team. Social Prescribers are an integral part of the primary care network team, delivering holistic service to patients and improving the health and wellbeing of the local population.
The social prescriber for our surgery is Jessica Litherland.
How can I get access to a Social Prescriber?
Speak to a member of our reception team who can give you the information you need.
Alternatively, you can speak to one of the GP’s in an appointment to ask them for more information on this and if they can refer you on to the social prescriber to help you talk about the issue you are facing and find you the right help.
The eligibility criteria for the Social Prescriber is anyone 18+ who is registered at our surgery, who may need help and support in a particular area.
