Travel Health


Our practice nurses are available by appointment to offer medical advice regarding travel and vaccinations where appropriate. Please telephone reception to book an appointment. 

If you are travelling abroad, you may need vaccinations or medication to prevent contracting diseases. Many vaccinations are available on the NHS and do not incur a charge but there are some which need to be paid for privately and these are listed below. If you need these vaccines, please consult a travel clinic where specialist nurses are employed. A leaflet containing some travel clinic information is available at reception.

Please be aware that we need at least 8 weeks notice before you travel in order to assess your requirements and adhere to the vaccine schedules. We will try our best to accommodate but if we do not have appointments available, you will need to attend a travel clinic for all.
