Travel Health

Please be advised that this surgery offers a basic travel health service which includes the free NHS travel injections:

Revaxis ( diptheria/tetanus/polio) protection lasts for 10 years. Hepatitis A (which is currently unavailable), Typhoid, and Cholera. MMR may be offered to some patients.

These can only be administered when a travel risk assessment form has been fully completed at least 1 week in advance of the Nurse appointment.  These forms can be obtained from Reception, or by printing off the attached form and returning it to Reception 1 week before a travel appointment. Travel risk assessment form

Individual patients will need to book a 20 minute appointment with a Nurse, with a further 10 minutes for other family members.

Vaccines take two to three weeks to become fully effective therefore it is sensible to book a travel consultation at least 4 to 6 weeks prior to travel. The consultation will include a general travel advice leaflet and printed country specific information obtained from http://travelhealthpro.org.uk/
