If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
Please complete the Travel Health Questionnaire below and this will be passed to a practice nurse who will review the information provided and contact you with an appointment if necessary.
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.

Travelling in Europe

Consultant led clinics are held at, or very local to, Oaklands Health Centre.
These services are provided by Drs Shamsee, Ward and Associates to bring consultants, experts in their respective fields, to you the patient, rather than sending you to see them at their hospital consulting rooms.
Patients being seen at these ‘outreach’ clinics can expect the waiting time for their first appointment to be much shorter than if they were going to the hospital to be seen. In most cases, the waiting time for the first appointment is 4 to 5 weeks. In all cases, patients are referred to these clinics by their doctor or nurse practitioner and cannot be directly accessed without first seeing a clinician at Oaklands Health Centre.
What happens next?
After your initial consultation, the consultant will decide whether you can be discharged from the service, if you should be seen again at the outreach clinic for a follow up appointment, or if further investigations or procedures need to be carried out in a hospital setting. In each case, your consultant will fully explain their decision and will keep your GP informed of your progress at all times.
