- Travel Risk Assessment:
If you're planning a trip abroad please complete our Travel Risk Assessment form 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 48 hours) and will advise on what vaccinations are recommended and whether any other precautions are needed.
- Please Allow Plenty of Time:
Patients are advised to allow plenty of time for vaccinations (at least two or three months) especially if traveling to an out-of-the-way place where they'll be living or working among local people. Some courses of vaccine such as rabies or Hepatitis B need to be given over several weeks.
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.
We offer the travel health service free of charge, but unfortunately 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.
