Travel Health

Do you need vaccinations?

Our Nurses can provide comprehensive travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.

Travel Assessment

We offer a full travel advice and immunisation service. If you are travelling abroad please complete and submit a travel form in plenty of time (we recommend 6-8 weeks) before your journey.

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
  • Dr Now (Beaconsfield)   0330 100 4119

Travel Vaccination Prices

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.

Payment for non-NHS services must be made at the first travel appointment.
