Please download this travel form, or collect one from the surgery reception, and complete it as fully as possible.
Please also take the time to visit www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk to read up about Hepatitis B, rabies, and other risk factors that may be relevant to your travels, so that when you see the nurse you are well informed.
Please then book an appointment with a nurse and bring your completed form with you.
If you do not being your completed form with you we cannot address your travel needs safely in the allotted appointment time and may have to send you away to rebook.
At this initial appointment the nurse will discuss your requirements. You may not receive any vaccinations at this first appointment, but, if necessary, appointments will then be made for your vaccines.
If you are going on an extended, complex trip visiting several countries, please book a double appointment initially.
We recommend you book your appointment a minimum of 6 weeks before you are due to travel, as some vaccines are given as courses over weeks.
The surgery does not have last minutes appointments available, and any travel vaccination should be given a minimum of two weeks before you go, so please plan your trip to the surgery well in advance.
If you book in with a nurse too close to your travel date we may not be able to offer you vaccines. Alternatively, you could visit a travel clinic.
* Please note that some vaccinations will incur a fee, these can be viewed on our Non-NHS Services tab above.
If you require a Yellow Fever vaccination, and are not a registered patient at the Glastonbury Surgery, you will need to complete a Yellow Fever form . Your GP will need to complete part of the form, so please remember to allow sufficient time for them to do this, and for you to collect it prior to your appointment with us. If you do not have a completed form with you at the time of your appointment, we will not be able to provide you with the vaccination.
It is not possible to provide all services under the National Health Service and the following tables show the current level of private fees and the services for which you may have to pay.

With No Scalpel Vasectomies, the surgeon makes one tiny puncture with an instrument, which is then used to gently stretch the opening it has made so that the vas deferens can be reached and blocked using the same method as conventional vasectomies. There are no sutures so the wound heals far more quickly leaving no scar.
Dr Strawford is an experienced vasectomy surgeon and has received extensive training in this procedure and is a member of the British Association of No Scalpel Vasectomists. He offers no-obligation consultations to discuss all aspects of the procedure which is free of charge with the NHS at Glastonbury Surgery.
You should be able to return to light work the day after the procedure. Although please allow 2-3 days to be on the safe side. If your job is very physical or involves heavy lifting, a week off work is recommended.
There is little discomfort with the local anaesthetic and once this has worn off any pain felt is only slight and can be treated with paracetamol or ibuprofen.
The actual procedure will only take 20 to 30 minutes.
The No Scalpel Vasectomy has very low rates of post operative complications of bruising, swelling, and pain; and is now the preferred method of sterilisation as endorsed by the Family Planning Association and Royal College of Surgeons.
Effective at treating acute pain, musculoskeletal problems, digestive complaints, skin disorders, menstrual and infertility issues, sleeping problems, depression, stress and more.
