- Hepatitis A - some combined vaccines, such as combined - hepatitis A and B
These vaccines protect against diseases which are considered to be the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into the country.
For other private travel vaccinations you are advised to attend a local private clinic and you will have to pay for these to be administered.
- Hepatitis B
- Meningitis C and other meningitis vaccines
- Japanese encephalitis
- Tick-borne encephalitis
- Yellow fever
- Malaria Tablets
If you are travelling abroad please make sure you contact us in plenty of time to arrange any vaccinations that may be necessary.
Advice and vaccination are given by the Practice Nurse. Please do not ask any of the Receptionists for advice regarding travel vaccines, as they are not medically trained.
You will be asked to complete a travel questionnaire prior to the appointment, so that the Practice Nurse can check what vaccines you may require.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel, please complete our online travel form.
We recommend that you have your travel vaccinations administered at least 4 - 6 weeks before your departure date so please take this into account when contacting the surgery.
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.

Travelling in Europe
Your rights & EU rules
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
As an EU national, you enjoy the right of free movement. This means you’re entitled to travel, work and live in another EU country. If you’re a citizen of a Schengen country – which is most EU countries – you’re also free to travel to other Schengen countries without the need for border checks.
As an EU national, you can also benefit from EU-wide passenger rights for travel into, out of or within the EU by air, rail, bus/coach or ship. You can travel with pets and other animals in the EU provided you comply with the rules (pet passports). There are EU limits on taking alcohol, tobacco or cash with you to another EU country. Each EU country can set its own limits or restrictions, so check before you go.
