Travel Vaccinations




If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, we advise that you contact a Travel Vaccination Clinic please. The practice is only able to offer Polio (given as a combined diphtheria/tetanus/polio jab), typhoid, hepatitis A and cholera.

Should you need any of the above, it is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment maybe required with the practice nurse. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the Fit For Travel website.


Period Delay Medication

Under new prescribing guidelines, we are unable to give medication to delay periods for travel or sport under prescription. We can also no longer provide a private prescription for this. If you would like to postpone your period, you can visit a pharmacy website by searching online for ‘delay period pill’, have an online counselling session with a pharmacist and order the medication privately from them.
