We run a Travel Clinic at the Health Centre for our patients who are travelling abroad.
It is important that you book your appointment with a Practice Nurse four to six weeks before you travel. This is to confirm what injections (if any) you will need. Some injections are free, but some are not supplied on the NHS and you will have to pay for them.
Travel Appointments are offered throughout the week. You can also book a telephone appointment to speak with a travel nurse for advice, these calls are bookable in advance via reception. If you are travelling outside of Europe or for longer than 2 weeks please inform reception that you will need a double appointment.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe within the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland you can access medical treatment using the EHIC card, which has replaced the E111 form.
You can find out further information and apply online via this website.
