Travel Assessments

Please note that The Barcellos Family Practice does not offer a travel assessment service to patients.

Therefore, you may wish to contact The Wimborne Travel Clinic based at the Quarter Jack Surgery in Wimborne. To enquire about their services visit or phone 01202 881693.

At the travel clinic they will assess your vaccination requirements and arrange for any private vaccinations to be done. Should you require any travel vaccinations that are done routinely by the NHS they will refer you back to the surgery for an appointment with the practice nurse to give the vaccination.

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.

Please note only the undernoted vaccines are available on NHS Prescriptions:-

  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus
  • Polio
