The practice nurses will give advice on foreign travel and any other immunisations required.
A minimum of six weeks notice is required. If you are unable to give this, you may wish to check whether we have an available appointment. If the nurses are fully booked you should be prepared to arrange your immunisation through a private travel clinic. Details can be found on the Travel Advice page.
