We run a Travel Health clinic once a month. Appointments can be booked by contacting reception. It is essential that you complete our short questionnaire before booking an appointment. This allows us to ensure we have your required immunisations in stock. Travel health questionnaires are
available for download by clicking here.
We are a designated Yellow Fever centre and our nurses are fully trained in all aspects of travel health advice. Please make an appointment to see one of the nurses at least 6 weeks before you travel - this is important as vaccination against some diseases requires a course of injections and can take up to 2 weeks to give you full protection once you have finished the course. Each member of your family will require separate appointments.
Travelling abroad always some risks to your health but by ensuring you have the correct vaccinations and you take certain precautions you can minimise your exposure to
most major health hazards.
