If you require travel vaccinations, you will need to complete a Travel Risk Assessment (one per person) and return it to the Practice as soon as possible, 6 weeks before travel. Please download and complete our Travel Risk Assessment form, then either, email it to rising-brook.surgery@, or hand it in at reception. nhs.net
Once you have returned the questionnaire, please make an appointment with a Practice Nurse (for a family you need to inform the Receptionist who will ensure a double appointment is booked if necessary).
If you require a prescription for vaccinations this will be ready to collect 48 hours following your appointment.

We offer most of the travel health service at no additional charge to the patient. However the NHS does not cover the cost of all the treatments you may need. Therefore, for some services you may need to pay.
Malaria Tablets are NOT provided on the NHS and sometimes can be bought over-the-counter or may require a private prescription. The nurse can advise regarding this or you could discuss with your pharmacist. REMEMBER some tablets have to be started at least one week before you travel and you need continue to take them when you return to the UK for the advised length of time.
