Have you planned your travel health?
If you're travelling, you can sometimes be hit with nasty health-related surprises from abroad, from diarrhoea to hepatitis, malaria or even rabies. Whether you've considered your health risks or not, reality is that some countries carry a higher risk of certain infectious disease. So please don't be caught out on your trip!
To help us offer the appropriate advice please follow the steps below:
- Download and complete the Travel Questionnaire 6 - 8 week prior to travel. Send the form to us.
- We will contact you to make an appointment to see our nurse for an initial consultation.
- Second or third appointments may be necessary to complete a vaccination course, our nurse will advise at the initial consultation. Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge and some vaccines are ordered in and administered on a private basis. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. Upfront payment will be required prior to us ordering chargeable vaccinations (a debit/credit card facility is available).
