Whether you are travelling in Europe or further a field, backpacking or taking a year out to travel, the Travel Clinic will be able to offer you the necessary advice and vaccinations to meet your needs.
Prior to making an appointment, please complete a Travel Questionnaire, please see below. Please remember that your first appointment should be at least 6-8 weeks prior to travel. Travel appointments are not urgent and we are not able to provide emergency appointments for travel. Please ensure that you allow adequate time for your vaccinations.

Once we have your completed questionnaire please telephone the surgery to arrange an appointment.
Please remember to bring with you to your appointment proof of vaccinations already received if you have them. Your initial appointment will last for half an hour, further appointments maybe necessary if you need of course of immunisation.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 to 8 weeks before you travel. Your second appointment should be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
