Crosland Moor Surgery
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel it is important to complete a travel form available at reception, this will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required, then contact the surgery 7-10 days later to see if you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse. We would need- at least 8 weeks before you travel as we need time to make the assessments and have the availability with our practice nurse, you may be asked to pay for certain immunisations before your appointment as some vaccines are not kept in stock.
If you are traveling within 6 weeks of completing the forms then we cannot guarantee we could accommodate you with a nurse’s appointment and we would advise you to make arrangements at a local travel clinic.
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.
