Immunisation advice and information are available at our travel clinic. Our travel clinic is run 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 you complete 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.
Hand in your completed Travel Risk Assessment forms to our reception team and an appointment can then be made with one of our nurses for any vaccinations needed. 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 allow at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
You should bring with you a record of any previous immunisations you have had. 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.
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
