If you require travel advice and/or vaccination prior to going abroad, please try to plan ahead. We are only willing to provide this service if it is six weeks or more before your date of travel.
If you have less time than this, please contact Travel Health UK in Shenfield on 01277 200169.
If your trip is for longer than one month, or to very rural or remote areas, three months in advance would be more suitable. You will need to book an appointment with the practice nurse; we do not offer travel advice over the telephone. If you wish to see a nurse for travel advice then please either download the attached form and return the completed form to the surgery or if you prefer you can collect a form at reception.

This practice is a yellow fever centre and this immunisation can be provided for travellers to those tropical countries where it is required. There is a fee of £65 for this. If you would like to make an appointment for yellow fever, please print off and return the attached consent form.

All other immunisations are currently free of charge. The nurse can advise on and administer the vaccinations you will need for your holiday. She will advise on anti-malaria treatment, making use of current national guidelines. Prescriptions for anti-malarial tablets for use on holiday are not available on the NHS. Most can be bought direct over the counter. A few, mefloquine and malarone for instance, will need a private prescription from the doctor.
