Travel health

Stay safe and healthy abroad

If you are travelling abroad you may need to be vaccinated. Please request a travel questionnaire on our Patient Triage Page in the admin section. Once the questionnaire is submitted our nurses will be able to review which vaccinations you will need, which will depend on where you are travelling. You will then be invited to make an appointment with our nursing team.

It is important to make this initial contact at least eight weeks before you travel so that the vaccines can be ordered. You will need a second appointment to receive the vaccinations.  Your second appointment should be at least two weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription which cost more than the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
