Travel Advice

If you are planning on travelling you may need some vaccinations or medication.

Travelling is one of life's great pleasures but it's important to remember that there is no such thing as risk free travel.  Patients travelling abroad should take some time to consider any potential risks in the areas being visited.  

How to plan your travel vaccinations

Please read NHS travel advice www.nhs.uk/conditions/travel-vaccinations/

Please check the recommended vaccinations for your destination on a vaccination website for example National Travel Health Network Centre https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/

Chew Medical Practice does not provide a full travel clinic service.  However, we do provide the agreed NHS vaccinations. Please click here for a list of free agreed NHS vaccinations

For these free vaccines please complete a Travel Risk Assessment form and check your vaccine history using the NHS App or via patient online services, then make an appointment to see a Practice Nurse. Please click here for a copy of the travel risk assessment form

Please remember to leave enough time before travelling (minimum of 8 weeks) as some vaccines might need more than one dose and can take time to complete the course.

If you need further advice or non NHS vaccines you will need to book an appointment with one of the private travel clinics for a consultation  to complete a full risk assessment and private vaccines.
