We offer a ONE STOP Travel Clinic here at Richmond Road Medical Centre.
To avoid unnecessary hassle and multiple appointments, we have devised 3 simple stages as follows for patients requiring travel vaccinations:
1. If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, please complete the online form and press submit.
2. Our nurses will then review your form and advise our administrative team which vaccinations are required.
3. Patient's are advised to contact the surgery after 48 hours of initial form submission to find out if any vaccinations are required - at which point they can book an appointment to have these done.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to hand the form in at least 6 weeks before you travel. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your vaccination 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.
