All you  need to do is ring between 08:30-11am and the receptionist will give you a slot time to come down. We hope this will stop any delays forming at this very busy season. As well as our usual 10,500 patients, we also tend to moreholiday makers at this time of year, so please bare with us.  If you have any concerns or queries please do not hesitate to contact myself, Debbie Kershaw Reception Manager on the usual surgery number.

We are pleased to announce that Dr Wade Rebelo has joined us a full time partner, he has been very popular amongst patients and we are thrilled to have him. So welcome aboard Dr Rebelo.

Travel Vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a  Travel Questionnaire Form and submit it to the practice at least 8 weeks before you are due to travel. This form can be found at the bottom of this page or can be collected from our Reception. You will then be contacted to book in for the vaccinations that are available from the surgery. A list of these are below.  Your appointment needs to be at least 4 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work

Which vaccinations do I need?

You can find out which vaccinations are necessary or recommended for the areas you'll be visiting on these two websites:

Some countries require you to have an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) before you enter. For example, Saudi Arabia requires proof of vaccination against certain types of meningitis for visitors arriving for the Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages.

Many tropical countries in Africa and South America won't accept travellers from an area where there's yellow fever unless they can prove they've been vaccinated against it.

Where do I get my vaccinations?

Once we have received your completed travel form into the practice it will be assessed by one of our nurses and then you will be conacted by one of our receptionists who will book you into the nurse clinic.

Alternatively, you can visit a local private travel vaccination clinic for your UK boosters and other travel vaccinations.

Free travel vaccinations

The following travel vaccinations are usually available free on the NHS:

These vaccines are usually free because they protect against diseases thought to represent the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into the country.

Private travel vaccinations

We are not a yellow fever centre so cannot vaccinate against yellow fever.

Yellow fever vaccines are only available from designated centres. The NaTHNaC website can help you find a clinic offering yellow fever vaccination.
