The treatment room nurses are happy to give advice, by appointment, on vaccination and other health requirements for foreign travel. Following appropriate assessment, vaccinations, for some of which there may be a charge, will be scheduled. Please note that for some courses of treatment to be effective they need to be started several weeks before travel - please don’t leave making an appointment to the last minute!
Our nurses can provide travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.
Select the region you are travelling to find out more.
Travel Vaccination Prices
Travel advice is covered by the NHS; however some vaccinations and prescriptions are only available privately. Payment for non-NHS services must be made at the first travel appointment.
Travel Vaccinations Message to Patients
- Please try to book an appt at least 8 weeks before you are due to travel as our clinics are very busy and some vaccines need to be given well in advance in order for your body to develop immunity.
- You can find out which vaccinations are needed for the areas you are travelling to on websites such as ‘Travel Health Pro’ or ‘NHS fit for travel’
- Contact us well in advance to book an appointment. If you don’t leave enough time to book in we may not be able to offer you an appt that coincides with your travel plans.
- If so, you may wish to consider contacting a vaccination clinic or pharmacy which offers travel healthcare.
- Not all travel vaccinations are free on the NHS and you may have to attend a travel clinic.
- Vaccinations for travel that are available free on the NHS include: Polio, Typhoid, Hepatitis A and Cholera.
