NHS programme

Our practice is able to offer free travel vaccinations under the NHS programme.

Details of which vaccines are offered free by the NHS are on the NHS online guide.

Depending on where you are travelling to, you might need some travel vaccines that are not included in the NHS programme. You will need to contact a private travel service if this is the case.

When should I start thinking about the vaccines I need?

The most important thing to bear in mind about travel vaccinations is the importance of forward planning. The advice on NHS website is that you should contact your GP at least eight weeks before your travel date.

The surgery does not provide any travel advice or advice on which vaccinations are necessary for your trip.

If you have done your research and need any of the above vaccinations then you can book an appointment with Practice Nurse at the surgery.

Hepatitis B Vaccination

Please note that Hepatitis B vaccination for occupational health purposes is not provided free of charge on the NHS and we don’t provide it privately to patients.

Alternative providers

If your travel date is less than 5 weeks away and we can’t provide suitable appointments there are private travel clinics in the Southport area but these do, of course, charge a fee.
