The Health Visitor visits the Surgery on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday (afternoon) of each month. Her clinic is run on a booked appointment basis. This prevents lengthy waits which have been a feature in the past when we have held drop in clinics.

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.
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.
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
When completing the Travel Questionnaire, please include details of all Areas that you are visiting for each country in the box relating to 'Any other relevant Information'
