Travel

This practice does not offer Travel Advice or Clinics.

If you are travelling abroad you should:-

1.  Log onto a website such as https://onlinedoctor.lloydspharmacy.com/uk/travel-vaccinations or https://onlinedoctor.superdrug.com/travel/  to get advice and perhaps make an appointment for vaccinations if required or you could ring either the Walk-in-Centre on 01603 611786 or contact a pharmacy such as Boots or Superdrug via the internet to book a private travel clinic appointment.  You will be charged a small consultation fee which is often reimbursable if you require private vaccination.

2.  You might also like to go onto a travel website, either http://www.fitfortravel.scot.nhs.uk/ or http://www.mastatravelhealth.com/  and print off the advice sheet for the area you are visiting, or you could ring MASTA on 0330 1004200. 

3.  You will need to know what vaccines you have had in the past.  If you do not have your own record then ask a receptionist to produce a computer print out of what we have recorded.

4.  You will be charged for each private vaccination and anti-malarial tablets but if you prefer to have vaccines which are available under the NHS here then please ask for a list of those required.  We are happy to administer these free NHS vaccinations on the Travel Clinics recommendation, just book a 10 minute nurse appointment. Our nurses will not give any travel advice during this consultation; you get substantial advice from the Travel Clinic.  Vaccines available under the NHS which are sometimes used for travel are Hepatitis A, Tetanus, Polio, Diphtheria, Typhoid and MMR.
