Travel Health

Travel Assessment Form

We offer a travel advice and immunisation service. If you are travelling abroad please complete and submit the travel form in plenty of time (we recommend at least 6-8 weeks) before your journey.

Your form will then be assessed by one of our Practice Nurses who will look at your vaccination record and the requirements for your travel destination. You will then be contacted by the practice to arrange a 30 minute travel consultation, which depending on your destination requirements may include travel vaccines.

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.

Malaria Tablets are NOT provided on the NHS and sometimes can be bought over-the-counter or may require a private prescription. The nurse can advise regarding this or you could discuss with your pharmacist.
