Travel Health Service

Anyone considering travelling abroad is reminded to look at the latest Foreign and Commonwealth Office travel advice (listed by country) 

Whether you’re off on a package holiday to relax, trekking through the Amazon, on Safari in Africa or exploring the world, our fully qualified and experienced Travel Health nurses can give you expert advice on staying health and safe abroad. 

  • Registered Yellow Fever Centre
  • Full travel risk assessments and advice
  • Travel vaccinations 
  • Free parking

Appointments are available throughout the week and you should aim to book your first appointment at least 8 weeks before you are due to travel.  

Travel consultations are carried out by specialist travel nurses in a dedicated travel clinic. 

We see both registered and private patients in our travel clinics.  If you are private, then please ensure you bring a copy of your up-to-date immunisation history with you so the travel nurses can assess your history and immunise accordingly.  A credit/debit card will be required upon booking an appointment for private patients.

Your initial appointment with the specialist nurse will run through a personal assessment of risks/needs, taking into account your length of stay, activities and any existing health problems.  This assessment will determine which vaccinations/medication you require.  

If you require any immunisations, the travel nurses will begin these as soon as possible. 

Not all travel immunisations are free on the NHS.  Many travel costs are not covered by the NHS and we have to charge for these. See below for details.
