If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, you need to refer to the instructions below. You will be required to list the countries and areas you are visiting.
Please visit : www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk for information regarding your holiday destination.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible Travel Questionnaires need to be received by the Chipping Surgery a minimum of 6 weeks prior to travel. We will normally contact you within 2 weeks of receipt of the travel documentation.
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. The cost of a private prescription is £21 in addition to the cost of the private mediation.
