Information and advice for travelling abroad
From December 2023 we will only provide NHS travel vaccines here at The Wells Medical Practice.
We are able to give the following free on the NHS to our own patients:
Our nurses are qualified to risk assess travel forms and give out travel advise for all vaccines required but private vaccines will need to be sourced from private travel clinic.
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.
Advice and vaccinations are given by the Practice Nurse. You will be asked to complete a travel questionnaire at least 8 weeks prior to the appointment so that the Practice Nurse can check what vaccines you may require. Please do not ask any of the Receptionists for advice regarding travel vaccines as they are not medically trained. If you have any queries please can you make a 10 minute appointment with the Practice Nurse.
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 8 weeks before your departure date.
