Patients who require travel immunisations for travel purposes need to complete a Travel Risk Assessment Form.
Ideally, the Form needs to be completed and returned to the Practice 10 to 12 weeks before your proposed date of travel.
This time frame allows for plenty of time to ensure you are fully vaccinated in good time before your travel. We allow for 1 week from receipt of your form for our clinical team to investigate which vaccines you need. We will then work to offer you an appointment schedule which is appropriate to your travel plans; you should then have your vaccines 6 weeks prior to travel to ensure you a fully covered before you leave the UK.
It is the responsibility of the nurse to check latest guidance on your vaccine status as they are clinically responsible for what is administered.
Unlike pharmacies, Medical Practice’s are not able to charge for vaccines, so this is why we unable to provide a drop in service.
Please pick up a Travel Risk Assessment Form from the Practice or download the Form here.
Once you have completed your Travel Risk Assessment Form please return it to Latham House Medical Practice as soon as is possible, either in person or by post in our external post box.
The Practice aims to contact you within one week to schedule your travel immunisations appointment(s). If we are unable to accommodate your requests, we will advise you as to where you may acquire your travel vaccinations.
