We provide travel vaccinations to our registered patients.
Please contact us at least 5-6 weeks prior to your trip where possible as some vaccinations require multiple appointments and time to become effective.
You can find information on www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk about your travel health and vaccinations
The following travel vaccinations are usually available free on the NHS:
Diphtheria, polio and tetanus (combined booster)
Hepatitis A – including when combined with typhoid or hepatitis B
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.
For other travel vaccinations please enquire at reception regarding prices as these prices are subject to change depending on changes in purchase costs.
