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 8 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.
If you are unable to book an appointment with us at least 8 weeks before you travel please contact Wimborne Travel Clinic on tel: 01202 881693, please click here for more information or you can contact the Verwood Vaccinations Clinic on tel: 01202 375622, please click here for more information.
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.

The Cranborne Practice has been running Tracker for many years now, keeping an eye on any vulnerable Patients within the Practice.
By vulnerable we mean anyone living alone, caring for someone, elderly, suffering from a debilitating illness or just not coping….anyone needing support and help which could cover medical, social and psychological.
Tracker has managed to keep many patients out of hospital, thus freeing hospital admissions for more acute conditions. Tracker liaises with other agencies to provide care.
Anyone concerned about someone who belongs to the Practice can refer them to Tracker and Lolly is available to do home visits. Lots of the Tracker work is carried out as advice over the phone, but visits are catered for if the need arises.
Annie can be contacted on 01725 517870 any weekday from 09:00am until 16:30pm.
