We provide comprehensive travel advice. If you are planning holidays abroad, you should check with us well before you are due to travel so that we can make sure that any necessary immunisation is competed in time. You may be denied admission to some countries if you are not fully immunised.
For online travel advice visit http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/. There is information about specific countries and the vaccinations required on the links below
Booking a Travel Health Assessment Appointment
Travel health telephone assessment appointments with our Practice Nurse are available to any patient who is planning a trip abroad. During your telephone appointment the Nurse will provide you with all the latest travel health information for the country(ies) you plan to visit. The Nurse will also discuss with you the need for any appropriate vaccinations.
Travel health assessment appointments should be booked at least 6 weeks prior to travel to ensure a full course of the appropriate vaccination can be administered if any are required.
Some travel vaccinations are not included in the normal services provided under the NHS and are therefore deemed ‘private’ (chargeable). Due to Government changes with effect from 31st July 2019 our nurses we will no longer be able to administer any private (chargeable) travel vaccinations. If private vaccinations are suggested the nurse will signpost you to an appropriate private provider to enable you to obtain these vaccines.
Please ensure you complete the travel health questionnaire below and return it to the practice at least a week before your telephone assessment appointment.
