IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR TRAVEL CLINICS
When arranging a travel appointment with a member of the nursing team, please ensure you allow as much time as possible before your travel date.
This is especially important due to a world wide shortage of various vaccines, due to manufacturing issues being faced by suppliers. As a result of this, supplies to the surgery are sporadic and unpredictable, with vaccines ordered sometimes not being delivered. The vaccines affected are
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
As a result, patients should be aware that depending on the specific needs identified at your consultation, there may not be any vaccine in stock on the day you attend.
We apologise for any inconvenience this situation causes patients, but hope you understand that it is caused by circumstances beyond our control.
Churchill runs a comprehensive travel advice service.
Prior to booking an appointment, patients MUST COMPLETE a travel form, which you can get from reception or download here. You will need to return the COMPLETED form to the surgery BEFORE you are able to make a travel appointment with the Practice Nurse. The form allows our Nursing team to ensure that your individual requirements are assessed and documented, and to prepare for your appointment.
Once you have returned the completed travel form to our reception team, you should wait at least 3 working days before phoning the surgery to check if you are able to make your appointment(s).
You must ensure you allow sufficient time so that you book your appointment for travel immunisations no less than 4 weeks prior to the date of travel. If you are not able to provide sufficient notice, we will not be able to book an appointment for you.
Some immunisations require several doses to be effective, so you may require more than 4 weeks’ notice for them to become effective. The best advice is to allow as long as possible between making your appointment and your date of travel. Some immunisations are free and others incur a cost so please be prepared for this and bring either cash, cheque or a debit card to cover any potential payments
