At Deddington Health Centre our Practice Nurses are able to provide our patients with NHS Travel Vaccinations.
These include Tetanus, Diptheria and Polio, Hepatitis A and Typhoid for both adults and children and advice and guidance on anti-malarial medication.
Please ensure you review the Travellers Website www.nathnac.net and specifically the section entitled country information prior to contacting the surgery.
We are unable to undertake travel assessments for complex travel outside of standard holiday destinations for trips over 4 weeks in duration, trips to multiple destinations or those including high risk activities which may present an increased risk to health. Individuals undertaking such trips are to contact a Travel Clinic for further information so that a full travel assessment can be undertaken. Should NHS vaccinations be recommended then these can then be arranged at the Health Centre.
We do not offer last minute appointments for travel. To enable one of our Practice Nurses to deal with your request please contact the Patient Services Team who will take brief details of your planned trip and pass this to one of our nursing team who will contact you.. Please ensure you do this as soon as possible but no later than 6-8 weeks prior to travel. We do not offer last minute appointments for travel under any circumstances and any vaccinations must have been received at least two weeks prior to any travel.
Please be aware that if you complete a travel request months in advance of your trip you will not be contacted until the appropriate timeslot prior to travel to arrange an appointment.
Should you have any questions then you are advised to request a telephone slot with one of our Practice Nurses who will be able to discuss this with you.
