There are some vaccines that aren't routinely available to everyone on the NHS, but that are available for people who fall into certain risk groups, such as vaccines for pregnant women, people with long-term health conditions, and healthcare workers.
Additional vaccines for special groups include:
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
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines 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.

Our reception staff will be happy to advise you about appointment availability and applicable charges.
Businesses must register for VAT if in a financial year they make any taxable supplies in the UK above £83,000. Tudor Practice is part of Our Health Partnership (OHP) and HMRC consider OHP as a business for tax purposes.
To comply with HMRC VAT regulation, Our Health Partnership applied to be VAT registered from 1st May 2016. Our fees/charges for Non-NHS services have been updated to reflect this change. VAT does not apply to the majority of the services provided by Tudor Practice but for some of the services the cost has increased.
