Before you go abroad, it's always a good idea to check out what steps you need to take to protect your health. This might be getting advice on the do's and don'ts whilst you're away or having vaccinations.
To help you get ready for your trip, we're now running a travel clinic at our Boundary site every Tuesday afternoon. This is open to non-patients so you don't need to be registered with us to come and see us!
When should I make an appointment?
As soon as possible and at least 6 weeks before you travel! During this appointment, our Lead nurse will discuss your travel arrangements with you, including which countries and areas you are planning to visit. This will help her work out what vaccinations, if any, you are going to need.If it turns out that you do need vaccinations, the Lead nurse will give them to you as part of this appointment if they are one of the sorts of vaccines we routinely keep in stock. If the vaccine you need isn't one of our stock vaccines, the Lead nurse will order it in for you and ask you to make a second appointment to come back and have it. All vaccinations need to be given at least 2 weeks before you head off to give them chance to work. In other words, the sooner you come to see us, the better!
What do I need to do before this first appointment?
Please fill out this travel questionnaire below and bring it with you when you come to see the Lead nurse.
How much will it cost?
