We offer pre-travel health checks, a travel health advice service and advice regarding recommended vaccination and anti-malarial prophylaxis for all patients. If you are planning foreign travel, you should book a consultation with the doctor well in advance.
Ideally, book your appointment at least four to six weeks before your planned trip. Your individual requirements will be assessed based on your destination, length of trip, previous vaccinations and medical history.
A great website to access information about General travel health advice/disease prevention advice is www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk. They outline all vaccinations required for every country and specific outbreaks happening all over the world.

Ideally, it is best to present for your vaccinations and advice some 6 weeks before departure date to ensure that all vaccination courses can be completed before travel.
