- Travel Risk Assessment
If you're planning a trip abroad please complete our Travel Risk Assessment form with details of your proposed journey. Alternatively if you prefer, you can download our travel clinic pack here, which can be printed off and returned to us. (Kindly note that this service is for registered patients only)
- Travel Appointment
Once you have submitted your form, please book a travel clinic appointment with the nurse, but please leave a week between submitting the form and your appointment so we can process your details.
- Please Allow Plenty of Time
Patients are advised to allow plenty of time for vaccinations (at least two or three months) especially if traveling to an out-of-the-way place where they'll be living or working among local people. Some courses of vaccine such as rabies or Hepatitis B need to be given over several weeks.
- Please provide as much information as possible
This will help our nurse decide how best to meet your needs. As a minimum we require travel dates, all destinations and as much of your previous vaccination history as possible. FORMS WITH INADEQUATE INFORMATION WILL BE RETURNED AND THIS WILL LEAD TO DELAYS FOR YOU.
If you require a prescription for vaccinations this will be ready to collect 2 working days following your appointment.
