TRAVEL ADVICE

If you are travelling abroad it is sensible to make provision well in advance of your expected date of travel, if possible a minimum of six weeks.

The Surgery can give full guidance on health matters relating to travel abroad and long haul flights.

Our practice nurses have up-to-date information and would be delighted to discuss your individual requirements.

The Nurse will need to know all of the countries that you plan to travel to and an up to date list of your vaccinations (the surgery will have a list of your vaccinations but if you have had any elsewhere please can you bring the record of this to the appointment).

By assessing your itinery and using the latest medical global information she can plan the best advice on your personal travel requirement.

Please note that you will be charged for some of your holiday vaccinations. Vaccination charges.
