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.

Travelling in Europe

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
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.
What is defined as emergency treatment under the Road Traffic Act and can a doctor charge a fee for treatment under the Act?The Road Traffic Act is silent as to what is defined as immediately required treatment. It is a common understanding that some injuries may not manifest until several hours after the accident and do not warrant a visit to a hospital accident and emergency department, but do warrant the attention of the local primary health care team. Under such circumstances where a claim is to be made, the Professional Fees Committee believes that the patient should be seen within one working day. The BMA’s legal advice is that, while treatment provided at the scene of the accident will be most common, treatment provided at the GP’s surgery can be included in the definition of ‘emergency treatment’ and therefore attract a fee under the Road Traffic Act.The fee under the Act is set by Government and is a statutory fee of £21.30. The person driving the vehicle at the time of the accident is responsible for meeting the Doctors professional fee for themselves, their passengers or anyone injured by their vehicle. All UK motor insurance policies cover the payment of such fees.
