From July 2023, we are recommencing our travel vaccination service for NHS travel vaccinations only. This will cover Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio.
Please request a travel questionnaire form at reception. Once the form has been completed, we will contact you to book an appointment with the Practice Nurse.
The Nurse will carry out a risk assessment and offer you the necessary advice. In order for your vaccinations to take effect, your appointment should be no less than 4 to 6 weeks prior to travel.
Before you contact us, please visit the Fit for Travel website to check what vaccinations you might need.
Useful information & advice
European health insurance card
The old E111 paper form has been substituted with the new European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Your EHIC lets you get state healthcare at a reduced cost or sometimes for free, in all European Economic Area (EEA). It will cover you for treatment that is needed to allow you to continue your stay until your planned return. It also covers you for treatment of pre-existing medical conditions and for routine maternity care, as long as you’re not going abroad to give birth.
It is advisable for all UK residents travelling abroad to carry these cards. It should be ensured before every trip that the card is valid. EHIC is valid for up to five years.
Apply for your FREE EHIC card at this website: www.europeanhealthcard.org.uk.
