If you have any chronic diseases, you will be reviewed by the practice annually or more often if required. The review is usually done with the Practice Nurse on the month of your birthday. You can contact the practice beforehand to book your appointment.
To find out if you need any travel vaccinations you will need to complete a travel questionnaire. You can either click on the link below or come into surgery to do this. If you do require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to make an appointment with the practice nurse.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form and then contact us one week later to see if you need any travel vaccinations.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. 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.
