HolidaysIf you require any vaccinations before travelling overseas, 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.

 

It is important to contact Sister's Receptionist on 01271 314236 as soon as possible - or at least 6 weeks before you travel, this is to ensure that you receive the correct vaccines prior to travel. Some vaccines and Malaria prescriptions may incur a charge.  Our Travel Clinic is open every Thursday afternoon by appointment only, between 14:00 and 17:30.
