Travel Immunisations

The Practice only provides immunisations that are free on the NHS. Malaria prophylaxis is not available from the Practice and patients are advised to book an appointment at a private travel clinic should this be required for your trip.  Details of local private clinics offering malaria prophylaxis and other private vaccines can be found below.

Please click on the link below, which will advise you on the vaccinations you may need for the country/countries you are travelling to. It will also contain advice about other risks you may encounter whilst travelling.

If you need a vaccination please complete the following health questionnaire and send it to our practice nurses via the Send button at the end of the questionnaire.  Alternatively, please print the form and post it to the surgery address or drop it into Queens Square Surgery.

The nurses will look at the health questionnaire to see if you need any of the free NHS vaccines available. The Surgery will then contact you to arrange an appointment if necessary.

Travel injection appointments should be booked 6-8 weeks before your holiday or business trip.

Any vaccines that are not provided on the NHS will need to be obtained from the private travel clinics. In order to obtain advice regarding any other vaccinations and malaria prophylaxis recommended and other precautions needed whilst travelling abroad and not provided by us, we suggest you make an appointment with one of the private travel clinics listed below:
