Travel Advice

flight_and_luggageIf you are planning a journey of any sort, please make an appointment with the Nurse to discuss your travel health and immunisations. There are a number of immunisations and malaria tablets not available on the NHS therefore a charge will be made for these.

Please see the fees list in Reception or ask the Receptionist.

Yellow Fever

The surgery is a registered Yellow Fever Centre. This service is also available to persons not registered as patients at Cartmel Surgery. This injection is not available on the NHS.

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.
