As you will be aware, the surgery is working under increasing pressure, and we are having to prioritise the services we can provide.
We have offered a full travel service free of charge until recently, but as the surgery receives no funding for this and it is very time consuming, we are sadly no longer able to continue this.
If you are travelling abroad you will need to read the information contained in the following link before booking an appointment with the nurse. If you contact the surgery to book an appointment the receptionist will ask if you have read the information, which country you are visiting and what vaccinations you require.
Below is a list of vaccinations and how long they will protect you for:
Hepatitis A - 1 dose will cover you for up to 1 year. If you receive a second dose within 6-12 months of your originally vaccination this will then protect you for 25 years.
Typhoid - 3 years
Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio - 10 years
