Noticeboard

Are you planning to travel abroad? If you are planning a holiday abroad and think you may need vaccinations or more general travel advice please complete a travel questionnaire which can be found under travel on the clinics and services page. Once we receive your completed questionnaire it will be passed to one of the travel nurses who will get in touch with you as soon as she can.


Are you Pregnant? If you have just found out you are pregnant, please click the link below to complete the maternity self-referral form. A midwife will then get in contact with you within 5 working days to make an appointment. https://www.uhmb.nhs.uk/maternity


 

Travel Advice

Please complete the online travel questionnaire below if you are planning to travel abroad and think you may need some vaccinations. The nurse will check through your travel plans and if necessary arrange an appointment for vaccinations and anti-malaria tablets or she may give you more general travel advice either at an appointment or by phone. Some travel vaccinations are not available under the NHS and a fee will be charged, this also applies to travel medication such as anti-malarial tablets.  

Yellow Fever

The surgery at Kirkby Lonsdale is a registered yellow fever vaccination centre, and appointments for this immunisation can be made with the practice nurse. This vaccination is not available under the NHS and a charge will therefore be made. We also provide yellow fever vaccinations for patients of other practices, please ring the surgery for more information.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

It is important to get in touch with us as early as possible- at least 6 weeks before you travel - as some vaccinations are  given as a course and more than one appointment will be required to ensure adequate protection.  These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine and your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines time 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.

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
