Travel Advice

Pre-travel Questionnaire

You can access the pre-travel questionnaire in the following ways:

  • Online via our online services (requires registration)
  • By downloading and completing the questionnaire below - once completed please return to the surgery at least 8 weeks prior to travel as some vaccinations need to be given well in advance.

You will need a pdf reader to view pdf files. The Adobe Acrobat® pdf reader may be downloaded free of charge by clicking on the Adobe icon to the right.

Please telephone the surgery on 01525 631391 five working days after submitting this form to enquire whether you need any vaccinations and, if appropriate, to book the necessary appointments

Payment has to be made at the time of vaccination -  Please note some vaccinations and malaria medications are not available on the NHS, so please come prepared with payment (cash or cheque only) at your appointment.

Travel Appointment Information

Due to the increasing demands on nursing time, we are withdrawing all private vaccinations for travel purposes.
We are still able to offer a pre-travel advice service for patients and continue to offer the standard NHS funded vaccinations for tetanus, Hepatitis A and Typhoid. Our reception staff can provide details of alternative local private travel clinics who are able to arrange any additional vaccinations.

Please seek advice as soon as deciding on your travel plans, to allow us to accommodate your appointment in plenty of time to take effect.

Yellow Fever

We regret to inform patients of the withdrawal of our Yellow Fever Centre status.

Unfortunately, the increasingly high costs of centre registration, means this service is no longer financially viable for the surgery to offer.
