Patients are advised that we do not provide travel advice.
We do administer the following vaccines if required:
- Hepatitis A.
We are advised by NHSEI, BMA and RCGP that travel vaccinations remain a low clinical priority, set against the context of the wider pandemic NHS recovery, patient access, long term condition management and offering the Covid vaccination programme.
However, we recognise that they remain important to our patients, so we protect a proportion of nurse time to deliver these every month.
We will endeavour to do what we can, but given the wider demands on our time which are clinically urgent, you may be advised that the time window for your vaccinations is inconvenient for your travel plans.
In this scenario if we have no availability to accommodate your needs, we will signpost you to local private travel providers, who may also be able to serve any additional needs for e.g. Japanese encephalitis and tick-borne encephalitis; meningitis vaccines; rabies; tuberculosis (TB) and yellow fever.
It is important that if you have been advised by a travel advice company or have read the links on the travel page, and feel you need the vaccines you need to give us 4 weeks notice – nurse clinics fill up quickly and they must first carry out a check of your vaccine history before you can have an appointment. To be effective vaccines normally need to be given 3 weeks before you travel.
