Travel Advice, Holiday Vaccinations and Anti-Malarial Medication

If you are planning a trip abroad, you can use the websites above for up-to-date travel advice for your destination. Then, you need to book an appointment with a nurse for your immunisations. Please remember to book a telephone appointment in advance of your travel date to ensure that you receive the correct advice and treatment that might be required.

Please download and print the Pre travel health questionnaire and bring it with you to your appointment.

Travel is a non-NHS service and unfortunately due to the current demand on our nursing appointments, we are unable to give a comprehensive travel service at short notice but will continue to provide the following travel vaccinations, which are available on the NHS for registered patients:

Tetanus, Diphtheria and Polio booster – protects patients for 10 years
Hepatitis A – protects patients for 25 years (after two doses)
Typhoid – protects patients for 3 years
