If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to download and complete our Travel Questionnaire (you can find the link for this at the bottom of this page), you can either print it and hand it to reception or submit it electronically.
Once the practice has received your travel questionnaire please make a telephone appointment with a practice nurse to discuss the countries you are visiting to determine which vaccinations may be required and your malaria risk, ideally 2 months prior to travelling; some vaccines need to be given a month before you travel. A second appointment will be booked to receive the vaccinations, this needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow them 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 service provided by the NHS
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below.

been prepared by Health Protection Scotland in relation to travel health and travel
The A - Z of Healthy Travel
Planning on having private treatment/surgery in the UK or abroad?
Please be aware that the whole episode of the treatment should be provided by the private provider, i.e. blood tests and other tests, suture removal, dressing changes, routine wound check, prescribing during your episode of private treatment, etc., and the Practice should not be involved in any aspects of this episode of treatment, with the exception of emergency care relating to the treatment.
It is also the private providers responsibility to issue a Fit Note covering the entire anticipated period off work, but if any longer time off is then required when you are no longer under the care of the provider then this would be the practice responsibility.
