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.

Quorn Medical Centre has housed an acupuncture practice since 2006, run by Elaine Glasius. Elaine is a registered nurse and health visitor and trained in acupuncture at the College of Traditional Acupuncture in Warwick. Elaine works at the medical centre on Thursday and Friday afternoons and sees people with a wide range of conditions, and of a broad age spectrum ranging from little people to the elderly. Treatment costs:£43.00 per session Adults (or those over 12 years) £20.00 for babies and children (treatment consists of gentle tapping or acupressure). To book an appointment, or to book a (no-obligation) consultation to discuss whether acupuncture would be suitable for you, please call 07770 852939. What is Traditional Acupuncture?Traditional Acupuncture belongs to an ancient system of healing based on the principles of oriental medicine. These emphasise the importance of energy or “Qi” for all good health. When Qi flows smoothly we feel well. When Qi is weak or its flow is blocked then the delicate balances of our body are impaired: disharmony can then lead to disease. Acupuncturists basically aim to assess and treat imbalances in the flow of Qi by insertion of a small number of needles-(or acupressure) on a few of the 400 points on the body. Why have something so “old” in a modern medical centre?Seeing an acupuncturist should not be a substitute for consulting a doctor if you are worried about your health. However, sometimes people find that either there seems to be no “reason” for their fatigue or low immunity (blood tests are normal), or they would prefer not to have to rely upon large doses of painkillers or hormonal treatment if something else would help. Although the practice of acupuncture is informed by oriental understandings of Qi, western physiologists have begun to discover measurable changes in blood chemistry and neurotransmitter activity after very superficial needling of only one or two points. Organisations such as the WHO now recommend acupuncture as a valid treatment for conditions such as nausea and back pain, and further research is beginning to show that it has a potentially wide application. Many hospital departments, including those seeing gastro-enterology patients, people with infertility or chronic pain now offer acupuncture as part of their patient care.
