Patient Information - Travel Risk Assessment Form
To download our Travel Risk Assessment Form - please click on the link at the bottom of this page. Once completed, please hand your form in at reception.
On receipt of your completed travel risk assessment form the nurse will check your form, electronic medical records, your paper medical records, and the conditions in the country(s) that you are travelling to.& Depending on demand, availability and accessibility, this can take a little time.
Once the nurse has formed a view on the vaccinations and advice necessary, someone from the practice will let you know if you need to book in.
Some vaccines are available on the NHS; some have to be bought privately. Private vaccines need to be paid for and ordered before your immunisation can commence – you will need to make a decision about this at your first appointment with the practice nurse.
Some courses of vaccines take 2 weeks before they become effective. A full course of some vaccines may take longer.
For all of the reasons above, we need at least 8 weeks before the time of travel in order to guarantee that the process can be completed. If you apply to us within a shorter notice period than this we may not be able to satisfy some, or all of your needs.
There are private clinics that might be able to help you speed things along in these circumstances – we can give you contact detail should the need arise.
