TRAVEL INFORMATION 

Travel Advice (Patients)

TRAVELLING ABROAD

Our nurses offer advice for when you are travelling abroad. You will need collect a travel form for each member of the family travelling from the surgery and make an appointment to see the nurse. We will need at least 6 - 8 weeks notice before you travel. The nurse will go through the form with you and check your immunisation status; she will then recommend a schedule of vaccinations if necessary. (Vaccines have to be ordered in as they are not a stock item). 

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge or incur a charge.  This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS; you will be advised at your appointment of these costs.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

NHSE will not permit travel immunisations to be given via the NHS (free) if the patient is travelling within 2 weeks of completing the course; as the immunisation will not have had sufficient time to take effect (seroconvert) and therefore NHS resources will have been wasted.

Bucks Policy 

Patients are required to commence courses of treatment no later than 8 weeks before travel. Patients requesting travel immunisation protection after this time are not entitled to the service under the NHS travel clinic program, and therefore a nurse travel clinic appointment will not be offered at the surgery.

These patients can approach private travel clinics that may offer immunisation and travel guidance. Local services are:

McParland Pharmacy     01494 762206
