Travel Advice

Immunisation advice and information is available at our travel clinic ran by our nurses. We are also a registered site for Yellow Fever.

  • Firstly you must complete a 'Travel Risk Assessment form' that is available from our reception desk or can be downloaded here. Click here to download.  When completing your travel questionnaire, please specify District as well as Country you are visiting or we may not give you the correct advice for your trip.  Please return your FULLY completed form to reception at least 8 WEEKS before travelling.
  • Your completed 'Travel Risk Assessment forms' should be returned to our reception team for review by our travel clinic nurses, they will look at your vaccination history and travel destination.
  • We will then contact you to arrange an appointment with one of our nurses.
  • It is important to make your appointment as early as possible, as a second appointment may be required depending on what you require. You should bring with you a record of any previous immunisations you have had. You should allow at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccinations to work.

Please note some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription cost. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. Click here to view our current price list.


Remember that if you are travelling to Europe you will need a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to enable you to obtain medical treatment. This replaced the old E111 and will cover you for all EU countries plus Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. Visit your local post office, benefits office to pick up an application form for one of these or apply online www.gov.uk/european-health-insurance-card


You can also visit www.masta.org or www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk  or Travel health pro to find useful information before you visit the clinic.
