Please allow at least two months before you travel to consider your travel health requirements.
To ensure your travel appointment runs smoothly, we ask all patients to collect a travel form from reception or download here. Once complete, please bring to reception and book your appointment with a travel nurse. The nurse will review your form before your appointment to make sure the advice given is absolutely up to date and that we have the vaccines you need in stock
There will be a charge for most travel vaccinations. Please note the practice can only accept cash or cheques. Some anti-malarial tablets can be bought over the counter at the chemist.
Please see our travel vaccination charges here.
The Key Medical Practice is an authorised Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
