Foreign Travel Advice

 Please call at the practice to complete a questionnaire at least 8 weeks prior to the date you are planning to travel.

If private vaccines are required, you will need to book a further appointment and pay for the vaccines in advance. 

We are only able to accept cash or cheques in payment for vaccines and payment must be made prior to ordering private vaccines.

Some travel protection needs to be administered at least 6 weeks before you travel. If you do not allow suficient time before your date of travel, you may not have all the protection that you require. We cannot provide vaccines to be administered elsewhere as we cannot ensure the cold chain is kept and so cannot ensure the safety of the vaccines. 

Private travel vaccine prices may vary as we often have to order them in. You will be given a price when needing a specific vaccine.

PAYMENT IS BY CASH OR CHEQUE SUPPORTED BY A VALID BANKERS CARD.
