This site is the one G.P.s tend to use for guidance.

Read it through then make an appointment at your medical centre and the nurse will advise you.

As far as I am aware you don't need yellow fever unless you are entering India from a yellow fever zone, which the UK isn't. You will need a typhoid jab as well, I expect, but as wanderin_star says, check with your health centre.
