Holiday Vaccinations and Travel Advice is an extra service provided by the Practice. This means it is an extra service not included on the NHS and all other NHS services come first.
Therefore it is your responsibility to:
- Make sure your Travel Form is returned as early as possible a minimum 6-8 weeks before you travel. Any forms returned to the surgery with 6 weeks or less before the departure date will be declined.
- Make sure your form is filled in correctly and please indicate if you require certificates for Visas. Failure to do so could result in your travel risk assessment not being completed.
If you require a copy of your vaccinations please feel free to ask for a print out at reception.
If you are outside the minimum timescale (6-8 weeks), your travel form may be refused and you will be referred to a Travel Health Clinic. Our GP’s do not organise vaccination schedules or order travel vaccinations.
