Travel Vaccinations

Please note: Due to capacity we cannot guarantee there will be an appointment to suit your planned travel dates.

When travelling abroad you need to start thinking about your travel vaccination 8-12 weeks prior to departure. Some vaccines can take time to become effective and may need to be ordered in.

The Nuffield Practice provides NHS vaccines for travel but are unable to provide a comprehensive travel assessment. If you are visiting more than one country, backpacking or have any significant health conditions (including pregnancy) we recommend that you seek advice from a travel clinic where more specific advice regarding other vaccines and anti-malarial requirement can be obtained by specially trained practitioners. Locally there is the Oxford Travel Clinic.

We only administer the following vaccinations for patients over 2 years old at our surgery:

  • Hepatitis A (after 2 doses lasts 25 years)
  • Typhoid (lasts 3 years)
  • Combined Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio (lasts 10 years)
  • Cholera

If you need any other vaccinations you will need to book an appointment for these at a Travel Clinic such as Oxford Travel Clinic.  In order for you to determine which vaccinations you may need please visit travelhealthpro.org.uk.

If you need any of the 4 vaccinations listed above, these are covered on the NHS. Please contact Reception to book a travel vaccination appointment with the Practice Nurse. Please fill in Travel Consent Form.

Please note: Once you have submitted your Travel Consent Form we will contact you to arrange your appointment. You can email forms back via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or drop these into the surgery during opening hours.

Zero Tolerance Statement

Our staff come to work to care for others, and it is important for all members of the public and our staff to be treated with respect.
We aim to treat our patients courteously at all times and expect our patients to treat our staff in a similary way.

We take seriously any threatening, abusive or violent behaviour againist any of our staff or patients. if a patient is violent or abusive, they will be asked to stop. if they persist, we may exercise our rights to take action to have them removed, immediately if necessary from our pratice list.

The practice considers thratening behaviour to be:

Attempted or actual aggressive threatening physical actions made towards any member of staff.
The use of aggressive, threatening or abusive language, (including raising of the voice, swearing and cursing, shouting) which threatens or intimidates staff.
In line with the rest of the NHS, and to ensure this is fully observed we have a Zero Tolerance policy in place, whereby any aggressive or violent behaviour towards our staff will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

Anyone giving verbal abuse to members of the staff will be sent a letter from the Practice stating that this behaviour will not be tolerated and may result in the removal from the Practice patient list. There will be no appeal process.

We hope that you will understand and welcome this policy which is in place for the best interest of our hard working staff as well as our patients.
