Travelling? We offer free travel advice with our practice nurses Laura and Christine.

You can make a 20 minute appointment with one of our practice nurses for travel advice and vaccinations. They will be able to tell you what you’ve had and what you will need depending on where you are going, when, and what kind of holiday you’re having. You should be making this appointment at least 6 weeks before you are due to go away. This is because some vaccinations require more than 1 course . It could be up to a course of 3 separate injections over a period of time to get you fully vaccinated followed by a blood test to make sure you are protected. Some vaccines will be free on the NHS, however some you will have to pay as they will be private. A full list of fees can be obtained from reception.
