Travel Vaccination For advice on vaccination requirements prior to travelling abroad, please make an appointment with one of the practice nurses at least 6 – 8 weeks prior to departure. Some travel vaccinations are available on the NHS, some are not. The nurse will advise which vaccinations you need and how much, if anything, they will cost. We would advise that you look at the website link below before your appointment so you understand which vaccinations you may need to have.
Please note that we are NOT a specialist travel vaccination service and that vaccinations such as:
Rabies; Yellow fever; Tick Encephalitis; Japanese Encephalitis are NOT available from this Health Centre and you will need to book an appointment at the Newport Pagnell Travel Clinic or other specialist travel services.
Stop Smoking We offer a stop smoking service witin the practice please ask at Reception for when the clinics are running.
Private Fees The practice is happy to carry out other medical services not covered by the NHS. This includes completion of private health insurance forms (BUPA etc.), certification for fitness to work/attend school, HGV medicals etc., but it must be recognised that our NHS commitments take priority. Fees are charged for this work at the minimum BMA recommended rate; a full list of fees is displayed in Reception, or a receptionist can advise you.
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.
Patients who fail to attend Travel Appointments will not be able to book a further Travel Appointment within the next 6 months.
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. The charges are listed in the table below:
