What's available on the NHS ?

 

Some travel vaccinations are freely availbale on the NHS. These include:

Some travel vaccinations are only available privately, vaccines incurring a charge are:

  • Yellow Fever £55

  • Rabies £150
  • Japanese B Encephalitis £180
  • Tick borne Encephalitis £120

Regardless of what vaccinations are required a £25 travel consultation fee is payable at time of attendance at the travel clinic. This is to pay for our nurse's time as this is a non NHS service. This cost will be redeemable against any private vaccinations that are recommended.

You will be advised if malaria prophylaxis is recommended for your travel. A £10 charge is applicable for those malaria tablets that require a private prescription:

Our practice nurse is trained in travel advice and vaccination. Please contact us in plenty of time (at least one month before departure) to arrange an appointment. In order for our nurse to assess your travel vaccination needs we need you to complete a Travel Risk Assessment Form.  This is available from reception or can be downloaded here .  Please return completed forms to Reception 2 days before your appointment.

 

Please note the £25 travel consultation fee is payable at time of consultation for each adult atttending for advice regardless of whether immunisations are needed or not. 

 

Your consultation will be 20 minutes long. If you are travelling to multiple destinations or going away for a prolonged period you may require a longer appointment.
