If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel 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. Please complete and return a travel form to our receptionist at Langford Medical Practice (not to our Victoria House site) - or email it back to us to: firstname.lastname@example.org, ideally at least eight weeks before you travel. The practice nurses use these forms to advise you on necessary travel advice including immunisations or medications you may need.
When you have completed and returned the Pre-Travel Questionnaire, the practice will contact you to make an appointment. If you have not received a message from the Practice Nurse regarding your travel assessment (within 7-10 days after returning your Questionnaire) please contact the surgery .
It is important to make an appointment as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - if you require vaccines, some of these vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Further appointments may be necessary.
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.
You can find lots of advice on the Travel Health Pro website.
