Travel Vaccinations

We are no longer able to offer private travel vaccinations at Cantilupe or Hampton Dene surgeries. This is due to increasing workload in our nursing teams. As i am sure you will understand, the nursing team need to focus on NHS care and caring for patients with long terms health related issues such as diabetes and heart disease, children’s immunisations and supporting the GP team.

The decision td do this has not been taken lightly and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

There are some vaccinations which are FREE on the NHS and we will continue to do these. See the list below. These will be offered at the practice .

Please see the NaTHNaC – Home ( for advice re NHS travel immunisation needs. If any of the immunisation below are required, please call us to book an appointment. Please allow at least 6 weeks before travel for this .
