If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel:
Please ensure you give us at least 6 weeks notice if this is not the case you may not be best protected and vaccinated before your travels.
You will need to complete a Travel questionnaire (also available at reception) and return the form to reception, this can be emailed in too. Your destination(s) with details of areas within countries that you are visiting, length of stay at each location and your contact details (including your email address).
The reception team will contact you and will book you in with the practice nurse having checked your immunisation records we hold, if you feel we may not have all of your records, please send this through at the same time of the sending in your travel questionnaire form so this can be updated onto your immunisation records.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on https://www.travelhealthpro.org.uk
It is important to contact us at soon as possible before you travel as some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not stock items.
Some travel vaccinations 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.
Anti malarials can no longer be given on NHS Prescription
Recent changes in Southwark mean that unfortunately GPs can no longer prescribe malaria prevention medicines for travel on NHS prescriptions, but can do so on private prescriptions. Please contact us for charges.
