Travel Clinic


GP’s do not deal with travel immunisations and antimalarial medication: You will need to see the Practice Nurse or Physician Associate.

Travel vaccinations and advice are available by appointment. Please tell the receptionist when you book the appointment that it is for travel advice/medication. Please send us a completed Travel Clinic Questionnaire when booking your appointment. It is important that we receive the completed form as soon as possible so that we can ensure we have sufficient stock of any vaccines you may require.

We have appointments available throughout the week. The surgery is a registered Yellow Fever Centre.

In order for you to receive maximum protection, we advise that you make an appointment to be seen 8 weeks before you travel. However, should your trip be sooner we will still be able to help, so please contact us as soon as possible.
