Our Treatment Room nurses can administer travel vaccines that are provided on the NHS.
The following vaccinations are commonly advised for many destinations, are available free on the NHS and can be given here as necessary:
- Tetanus, Diphtheria, Polio (combined vaccine)
- Hepatitis A
Other vaccinations (eg Yellow Fever, Rabies, Hepatitis B) may be advised or required depending on the length of trip, type of accommodation, region being visited, planned activities, purpose of the trip, and sometimes due to disease outbreaks.
These vaccines would need to be given at a high street travel clinic/pharmacy (see below) and paid for privately.
Malaria prophylaxis medication is not prescribable on the NHS and you will have to pay for your tablets. We are able to advise on appropriate malaria medication and provide a private prescription for these but we have to charge a private prescription fee of £15 per person (on top of the cost of the tablets). This may be cheaper at a pharmacy or travel clinic.
Please plan ahead, you are advised to check your requirements at least 6-8 weeks before travel. Some vaccinations may need several doses given over a number of weeks.
If you have had travel vaccines before you can make a telephone appointment with us to check what we have on record and then arrange to have any recommended NHS vaccines here.
You should also visit the NHS: Fit For Travel website to read the information for the country you are visiting. If it is likely that you will be recommended to have further vaccinations and/or take malaria tablets then you can contact one of the travel clinics listed below:
