We are pleased to offer our registered patients a travel health service.
Our nurse uses up to date information to advise you on your health needs related to destinations around the world. They can administer most vaccinations and provide prescriptions for treatments where needed.
May we take this opportunity to wish you a pleasant trip!
Booking your Appointment with the Nurse
- Travel Risk Assessment:
If you are planning a trip abroad, please complete a Travel Risk Assessment form (available from reception) with details of your proposed journey.
- Travel Appointment:
After completing the form please contact the surgery to arrange your assessment appointment with our specially trained nurse. The nurse will then contact you as soon as possible (usually within 2 working days) and will advise on what vaccinations are recommended and whether any other precautions are needed.
- Please Allow Plenty of Time:
Travel Vaccine Policy: Patients are required to give at least 8 weeks’ notice of their intention to travel abroad, to enable a thorough risk assessment to be performed and appropriate vaccine ordered. Patients who are unable to give at least 8 weeks’ notice of intention to travel abroad will be signposted to the local travel pharmacy.
Mosquito Bite Avoidance for Travellers
In many tropical countries, mosquitoes can spread diseases such as dengue, chikungunya, West Nile, malaria, yellow fever and Zika. Here are five simple rules you should follow to reduce your risk of infections spread by mosquitoes.

Travel Vaccination Charges
We offer most of the travel health service at no additional charge to the patient. However the NHS does not cover the cost of all the treatments you may need. Therefore, for some services you may need to pay.
A list of these charges can be requested at reception.
