- Travel Risk Assessment:
Please complete a Travel Health Risk Assessment form and submit it prior to booking your appointment. It is not possible to book a travel appointment without this form. You can collect forms from reception.
- Once your form has been completed, book an appointment with one of our nurses
- Please Allow Plenty of Time: Patients are advised to allow plenty of time for vaccinations (at least two or three months) especially if travelling to an out-of-the-way place where they'll be living or working among local people. Some courses of vaccine such as rabies or Hepatitis B need to be given over several weeks.
If you require a prescription for vaccinations this will be ready to collect 2 working days following your appointment.
