Foreign Travel Advice

 

You will need to book a 20/30 minute appointment for a travel consultation and NHS vaccines. There is a charge for some travel vaccines as they are not available on the NHS.  Please book travel appointments at least 6 weeks prior to the date you are planning to travel.

If private vaccines are required, you will need to book a further appointment and pay for the vaccines.

We are only able to accept cash or cheques in payment for vaccines and payment must be made prior to having private vaccines.

It can often take 6 weeks to give a course of travel vaccines. If you make an appointment that is near to your date of travel, we may not be able to give you all the vaccines that you request. Please ensure that you leave sufficient time prior to your travel for all vaccinations to be administered and important information given to you.  We cannot give vaccines to you to have administered elsewhere as we cannot ensure the cold chain is kept and so cannot ensure the safety of the vacicnes. 

Private travel vaccine prices may vary as we often have to order them in. You will be given a price when requesting specific vaccines.

PAYMENT IS BY CASH OR CHEQUE SUPPORTED BY A VALID BANKERS CARD.
