If you think you may require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a travel risk assessment form and hand in to reception at least 6 weeks prior to departure. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
Travel Advice Leaflet for More Information
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make hand this form in as early as possible - at least 5 weeks before you travel - as 2 appointments will be required with the practice nurse, a telephone consultation and then a face to face appointment to actually receive the vaccinations and be given the relevant health advice. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your face to face 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.
If you have not allowed enough time to receive the vaccine, or if we are not able to actually administer a certain vaccine, you would need to go to a private travel clinic. This is located on Regent Street in Nottingham city centre.
Travel Health Questionnaire

Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
We do not phone patients with test results unless medication is urgently needed. It is your responsibility to call to check on your results. Please call after 14.30.
You may be asked to make an appointment or be told of the comments the doctor has written after seeing your result.
Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:
A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm. and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.
You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
An X-ray is a widely used diagnostic test to examine the inside of the body. X-rays are a very effective way of detecting problems with bones, such as fractures. They can also often identify problems with soft tissue, such as pneumonia or breast cancer.
If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.
An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as X-rays and ultrasound scanners.
You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
