IT IS NOT OUR POLICY TO PROVIDE COVID- 19 FIT TO FLY AIRLINE LETTERS.
On 4th July UK travel advice changed with exemptions for travelling to
certain countries and territories that no longer pose a high risk for British
travellers. The government website provides guidance for those planning to travel abroad. www.gov.uk/guidance/travel-advice-novel-coronavirus. As your GP practice, it is not our policy to issue COVID-19 certificates for international travel purposes.
The only Travel Vaccinations/Service which is available of the NHS free of charge are:
Any additional vaccinations or travel advice you require for example malaria, water hygiene, sun protection, yellow fever will be at a cost to yourself through a private travel clinic. Prior to your appointment our nursing team will research which of the vaccines listed above you require (if any), and during your appointment administer them on the NHS free of charge, but no further services are available from this practice.
Please follow the practice protocol below when wishing to use this service:
- Give the practice 6 weeks notice
- Travel vaccinations will only be given for single destination holidays. This does not include volunteer work, backpacking, medical procedures and cruises
- If we are not able give you your vaccinations you can contact the private travel clinic. Ask at reception for details.
- No variation in available appointments and if you do not attend your original appointment it will not be re-scheduled.
