If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel:
Please ensure you give us at least 6 weeks notice if this is not the case it is unlikely we will be able to offer you an appointment at the practice and you will have to attend an external travel clinic.
- You will need to complete a travel form (available at reception or the Travel Form can be downloaded here) and return the form to reception. Your destination(s) with details of areas within countries that you are visiting, length of stay at each location, and your contact details (including your email address)
- A member of our nursing team will then contact you via email. They will make a recommendation (having checked your immunisation record) about what you need and also suggest next steps.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required please see the destinations section of the Fit for Travel website.
It is important that you contact us at least 6 weeks before you travel as some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not stock items.
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. For more information see the Travel Vaccinations section in the Health A-Z.
Anti-Malarials can no longer be given on NHS prescription
Recent changes in Southwark mean that unfortunately GPs can no longer prescribe malaria prevention medicines for travel on NHS prescriptions, but can do so on private prescriptions. For more information please see the Southwark CCG website.
