Cancelling your Appointment

If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone reception staff at the appropriate surgery. By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.

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. 

Then arrange a telephone 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.

Central America Central Americaindia South America

bulgaria Middle Eastpoland Central Asia
china East Asiachina Australasia and Pacific

 

It is important to make this initial telephone 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.


Travel Health Questionnaire

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please download, complete and hand in the Travel Questionnaire to reception.  Once this has been done please make a 20 minute telephone travel consultation with one of the practice nurses.
