Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

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. 

Patients should attend the Surgery or Specialist Travel Clinic 6 to 8 weeks prior to departure.
