If you are travelling abroad it is sensible to make provision well in advance of your expected date of travel, if possible a minimum of six weeks.
The Surgery can give full guidance on health matters relating to travel abroad and long haul flights.
Our practice nurses have up-to-date information and would be delighted to discuss your individual requirements.
The Surgery keeps a stock of travel forms that we ask you to complete for the nurse before your appointment. By assessing your itinery and using the latest medical global information she can plan the best advice on your personal travel requirement.
Please ask for a form at reception or you can download our Word version of the travel form or PDF version of the travel form.
Please note that we are only able to give certain holiday vaccinations at the health centre, and you may be asked to attend a private/commercial travel clinic for the other vaccinations.
