The Nursing Team offers a range of services within the practice, these include:
When making an appointment with the nursing team please inform the staff which service you require so that we can ensure you are seen by the appropriate professional.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.

The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales, and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Please allow for 7-10 working days for these documents to be completed.
