Influenza vaccination is recommended for at risk groups, those aged 65 and over and those suffering from chronic disease including heart, lung and diabetes. Please contact the reception staff for the influenza vaccination appointment in October.

Travel Vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the travel health questionnaire available from surgery reception and 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. You can also complete the online form here.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible – at least 6 weeks before you travel.

Some travel vaccines such as malaria tablets 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.
