Travel Health Clinic.

February 1st, 2010 by Practice Nurse


A travel clinic is provided by the Practice.

If you are planning a trip abroad please make sure you contact us in good time – a minimum of 6 weeks before you intend to travel ( 8 weeks where possible) so that we can collect enough information to get you adequate immunisation cover before you go. Some immunisations require more than one dose with a specified time gap in between.

Please note we do not stock all travel vaccines at the surgery – some can take up to 2 weeks to arrive.

You will be asked to complete a travel form (download it here) before discussing your travel needs with myself and the practice doctor if required.

We are now a Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre. If you intend to travel to a destination where this vaccination is required it needs to be given at least 10 days before departure.

The Fit for Travel website provides travel health information in a country by country guide for the public. It can be accessed at www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk.
