Green Valleys Health provide some travel vaccines.
If you would like to attend Leap Valley Surgery or Emersons Green Medical Centre for travel vaccines, please complete and return the request form. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer this service at Abbotswood Surgery at present.
Please complete a separate ‘Travel Risk Assessment’ form for each individual traveller. By completing and returning this form, you are consenting under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for the surgery to communicate with you via telephone or text.
Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio, Typhoid, and Hepatitis A are free of charge on the NHS and are stocked at both Leap Valley Surgery and Emersons Green Medical Centre. Some travellers may be at risk of other diseases such as Hepatitis B, Rabies, and Yellow Fever etc, for which there is a charge for. These vaccines are given at private travel clinics.
Where possible you need to complete this form at least 6- 8 WEEKS before your departure date as some vaccines require more than one dose and all vaccines need a minimum of 2 weeks to give full protection/immunity.
If less than three weeks’ notice is given prior to travel, we may NOT be able to offer an appointment before you go
Please bring back the completed travel form to reception– forms can be returned to Abbotswood’s reception but please be aware that no travel clinics are held at Abbotswood, and you will be offered a travel appointment at Leap Valley Surgery. A nurse will then look through the travel form and assess. Please allow a turnaround time of approx. 1 week from handing in your travel form to being contacted to book an appointment.
