These clinics are run by the midwives. If you become pregnant, you will be given a “booking appointment” which lasts approximately 1 hour at which the midwife will ask you a few questions and carry out some general health checks. You will be seen regularly throughout your pregnancy either at the practice or at the hospital, or both.

Travel Vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

We are not a registered yellow fever centre and if this vaccination is required you will be directed to the nearest centre for advice.

Please allow at least eight weeks before you travel.  Some vaccines require more than one dose and will not be effective until 2 weeks after the final dose.

Some travel vaccines are not provided by the NHS and will therefore be on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia  Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second 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.
