We are no longer providing travel advice consultations and you will need to seek this from another service (see form attached below). We are only able to provide the NHS vaccinations recommended for travel. If you require the NHS vaccinations simply return to the practice, with the form attached below completed, and book the next available appointment with a Practice Nurse. If the next available appointment is not soon enough for your travel needs then you will need to pay for the injections at the Travel Service.

You may find visiting the website and the Fit for Travel website.

Medication supplies when travelling abroad

Grove House Surgery follows the NHS rules on the provision of medications when travelling abroad.  The NHS allows a maximum of 3 months of medication to cover you when travelling out of the country. Unfortunately we cannot exceed this and you will need to make arrangements whilst abroad for repeat prescriptions if you will be out of the country for longer than 3 months.

If you have a Patient Access account you can access details of your repeat medication online, should you need to, for the overseas doctor.
