If you are thinking of travelling abroad please read our advice below. For those intending to go back packing or with a complicated itinerary, please contact the surgery several months in advance. 

Our Nurses can provide comprehensive travel health advice and arrange for appropriate vaccinations. We strongly advise you to check your requirements at least six to eight weeks before travel, as sometimes a course of up to three vaccinations needs to be given over the course of several weeks.

It is your responsibility to ascertain which vaccinations (and, if relevant, anti-malaria tablets) you need, and also to inform yourself fully of recommended travel safe precautions. To do this, you should visit here and read the information relevant to the country you are visiting.  Those intending to go back-packing or with a complicated itinerary should ideally contact the surgery several months in advance.

Please fill in our Travel Assessment form outlined below and one of our team will respond to you within 7-10 working days recommending the vaccinations you require for your trip.  Please be advised some vaccinations are not offered free on the NHS and will need to be paid for in advance of appointments.  Please click here for up to date prices.

For all advice on travel care including general health and malaria click here to read our Travel Advice Leaflet.  If you prefer please collect a leaflet from our reception team.

Non-urgent advice: Vaccinations

If you are not a patient at The Grange Surgery it is imperative you supply us with a copy of your immunisation record before receiving any travel vaccines. Please ask your GP practice for a copy and bring to your appointment.
