The Practice offers a few travel appointments each week. They are available on a first come first serve basis for registered patients and a private service for those living in the Bromley area whose surgery is not able to offer them an appointment within the required time frame. Our aim is to provide a high quality service in a friendly supportive environment.
Please note it is not an NHS requirement to offer travel vaccinations and therefore when necessary priority will be given in nursing clinics to NHS services that the surgery is contracted to offer.
It is important to make your appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as subsequent appointments may be required with the practice nurse. Some 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.
Please use the links below to ascertain what vaccines you are likely to require before contacting us for an appointment.
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.
A list of fees for our travel services for registered and non-registered patients is listed below.

BMA GUIDANCE - May GPs charge for Hepatitis B vaccinations on the grounds of occupational health reasons?
GPs increasingly face patients requesting Hepatitis B for occupational reasons because they are dental nurses or about to enter medical school.
In order to determine the need for, and advise patients about the risk, some knowledge of occupational health is required. GPs may not, under Schedule 5,
charge a patient for Hepatitis B in these circumstances, but a fee may be chargeable to a third party. However, neither does a GP need to provide Hepatitis B
immunisation under essential or additional services. Such patients may either seek vaccination privately (eg through a travel clinic) or, as would be most suitable
for those about to embark on training/work within the NHS through an occupational health Hepatitis B Local Enhanced Service where this can be negotiated with the NHSE
