Church View Surgery & The Jones Family Practice are only able to provide travel vaccines which can be given under the NHS. These include Hepatitis A, Tetanus, Polio and Typhoid.
If you think you require travel vaccines you need to contact a local travel service for advice and a travel risk assessment. You will need to take a list of the vaccinations which you have had. We can provide this for you. Written consent must be given for collecting this on behalf of somebody else.
If any NHS vaccinations are recommended you may book an appointment with our Practice Nurse. If the next available appointment we offer is not soon enough for your travel needs then you will have to find an alternative place to have these done and may need to pay for them.
You MUST bring your travel risk assessment to the surgery at least 7 working days before the appointment so that we can add a copy to your record. If we do not receive this your appointment will be cancelled. You will not receive any vaccinations without this.
The surgery will not accept any responsibility for any costs incurred for the travel risk assessment. This is strictly at the patient’s expense.
We cannot recommend Travel Centres but can suggest the following from the internet.
NHS website or Local Pharmacy for travel information
MASTA Leigh Medical Centre, 1446 London Road, Leigh on Sea, SS9 2UT - Tel: 0330 100 4215
Queensway Surgery, 75 Queensway, Southend on Sea, SS1 2AB- Tel: 01702 463333
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.
Unfortunately there can sometimes be a shortage of stock in the UK for travel vaccinations available within the NHS, please check with the surgery for further details.
