If you are planning a trip abroad please fill out the Travel Health Online Questionnaire and you will be contacted by text or email to book the relevant appointment with a Practice Nurse.
We advise that you complete the questionnaire 8 weeks before you plan to travel.
You will need to have an initial consultation to decide what injections are required. The nurse will then ask you to make another appointment at a future date, so that they have time to check your vaccination history and order any immunisations required.
To check what you will need and when please visit the Fit for Travel website. This site provides useful guidance on many health matters that may arise when you are abroad.
We produce a Travel Leaflet with useful advice and information which you can download here.
