Travel Health & Immunisations

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.

Many people are taking long-haul holidays requiring complicated courses of vaccines. To assist you in these requirements please see additional travel health information below.

May we take this opportunity to wish you a pleasant trip!


Booking your Appointment with the Nurse

  • Travel Risk Assessment:
    If you're planning a trip abroad please complete our Travel Risk Assessment form with details of your proposed journey. Alternatively if you prefer, drop into surgery to complete a form. (Kindly note that this service is for registered patients only)
  • Travel Appointment:
    Once you have submitted your form, please book a travel clinic appointment with the nurse, but please leave a week between submitting the form and your appointment so we can process your details.
  • Please Allow Plenty of Time:
    Patients are advised to allow plenty of time for vaccinations (usually three to four 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.

Travel Vaccination Charges

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.
