Travel Information

Travel Health Questionnaire

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please print and fill out the online form travel questionnaire and either return to the surgery reception or email to [email protected]

The travel nurse will review the questionnaire and you will be contacted by reception within 10 working days to make an appointment if necessary. Reception will NOT be able to answer questions regarding travel. This will be carried out at initial assessment with travel nurse specialist.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below. Please check this information before your appointment so you have prior knowledge of what you may need with activities/area travelling to.

Europe & Russia North America
Central America South America
Carribean Africa
Middle East Central Asia
East Asia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make an initial appointment as early as possible  – at least 6 weeks before you travel – as further appointments may be required with the nurse to receive a course of vaccinations.  Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.  Vaccine schedules need to be completed at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some vaccines are free on NHS. Private vaccinations need to be ordered for the individual. This will be discussed at the intial assessment, so please allow 8 weeks to cover for initial assessment and a course of vacinations. All private vaccines must be paid for in full before being administered.

If you are booking a last minute vacation and it is less than 2 weeks to departure, unfortunately we will be unable to meet your requirements due to nursing capacity/time restraints. In this situation we request you seek assistance with private travel clinics.

Please note we are NOT a Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.
