Whether you are travelling in Europe or further afield, backpacking or taking a year out to travel, the Travel Clinic will be able to offer you the necessary advice and vaccination service to meet your needs.
Prior to requesting a travel consultation with the practice nurse, you will need to complete a Travel Questionnaire. The questionnaire can be obtained either from reception or downloaded as a printable document. The downloaded copy can be completed on your computer and either printed or emailed back to the address shown on the questionnaire. Please remember that you should be vaccinated at least 4 weeks prior to travel to Europe and at least 6 weeks prior to travel to all other countries so allow adequate time.
Once we have your completed questionnaire please telephone the surgery to arrange an appointment at the travel clinic.
Please remember to bring with you to your appointment proof of vaccinations already received if you have them. In addition to receiving your vaccinations you will also receive an Information Pack at your appointment. Your initial appointment will last for half an hour, further appointments maybe necessary if you need of course of immunisation.
Travel advice is also available from MASTA on 0906 822 4100 - this costs 60p per minute but includes printed advice which you should bring to your appointment.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because travel vaccinations are not included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore is a chargeable service.

If you become unwell after your trip remember to tell us that you have been abroad. Malaria can develop up to a year after you become infected despite taking all possible precautions to protect yourself while abroad.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
