Travel vaccinations and advice

If you are planning to travel outside of the UK, you may need to be vaccinated against some of the serious diseases found in other parts of the world. 

Please contact us in plenty of time to arrange any necessary vaccinations

To help our nursing team determine your travel vaccination needs, you will need to complete a pre-travel assessment form. Please complete this in good time, well in advance of your travels.

We are able to offer Tetanus, Typhoid and Hepatitis A vaccinations free of charge. 
We cannot provide the Yellow Fever vaccination or non-NHS private vaccinations. The cost of travel vaccines that are not available on the NHS will vary, depending on the vaccine and number of doses you need.

How to complete a Travel Assessment Form

  • You can do this online via Anima.
  • Alternatively, call us on 01329 845777 or come into the surgery to request this.

Non-urgent advice: Important information

Yellow Fever

Please note we are unable to offer Yellow Fever vaccinations. You can find a local provider at

Prescribed medication

We can issue repeat prescriptions early or supply a larger quantity at the discretion of the doctor signing your prescription. Please submit your medication request with as much detail as possible, including the dates you will be away and when your medication is due to run out. This will help us to ensure we prescribe you enough medication and reduces the need to request more information from you.
