Travel health is a very complex area of nursing and we will never offer travel advice over the telephone.
The practice holds a travel clinic once per month, usually on the last Tuesday or Friday of the month. We encourage patients to contact us well in advance regarding their travel health needs, and no later than 8 weeks prior to travel. Each patient must complete a travel health assessment form. This must be returned to the practice no later than 1 week before your travel health appointment. Please collect a travel health assessment form from the surgery (or click on the link to print this off at home).
We will then be able to advise you with regards to vaccinations that are recommended or required for your trip. Please be aware that the practice does not provide non-NHS vaccines or non-NHS anti-malarial prescriptions and that you may be advised to source these at a private clinic, external to the practice.
We recommend that patients access the following website for advice with regards to bite avoidance, drinking water etc - fitfortravel.nhs.uk
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
