NHS Travel Advice and Vaccination Service
We aim to provide NHS advice and vaccinations for patients travelling outside the UK.
For current vaccination recommendations and comprehensive travel advice, check the free NHS site Fit for Travel.
Please make an appointment for a personal travel consultation with the practice nurse 6 to 8 weeks before travelling. Prior to appointment please complete the Travel Risk Assessment Form Form and send to email@example.com or return by hand at least one week before your appointment date.
We need to know the date you plan to leave the UK, the period of your stay abroad, the countries you will be visiting and the purpose of your journey.
If you originally come from the country you are visiting, it is likely your immunity will have worn off so it is important to be vaccinated.
Some vaccinations are available free of charge on the NHS for overseas travel.

|The following vaccines are not available on the NHS for overseas travel.|

Seasonal flu is a highly infectious illness caused by a flu virus.
The virus infects your lungs and upper airways, causing a sudden high temperature and general aches and pains.
You could also lose your appetite, feel nauseous and have a dry cough. Symptoms can last for up to a week.
We offer ‘at risk’ groups the flu vaccine at a certain time each year to protect you against the flu virus.
You may be invited for a flu jab if you are:
- over 65 years of age
- a serious heart or chest complaint, including asthma
- serious kidney disease
- lowered immunity due to disease or treatment such as steroid medication or cancer treatment
- if you have ever had a stroke
- If you have any queries please contact the surgery.
