Travel Assessment

We offer a full travel advice and immunisation service. If you are travelling abroad, please make an appointment at least 6 weeks before departure with our nurses or pharmacist to discuss your travelling needs

A second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations.

These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Before you travel, it’s important to find out whether you will need vaccinations for the country you’re visiting. The following websites will help you.
