Travel Medicine

We operate Travel Clinics from both Queens Road and Le Longfrie surgeries and we provide travel health advice and vaccinations.

We would suggest that you contact the surgery at least eight weeks prior to your trip and book an appointment with one of our Practice Nurses. During this appointment you will need to discuss the details of your planned destination, type of holiday, likely activities and the intended length of stay, in order that we can best advise on the appropriate vaccinations.

At the appointment the Nurse will take a full medical history and advise you of the recommended vaccinations. Some countries have a legal requirement that you provide a certificate to show you have received immunisations against certain diseases such as yellow fever, while in other scenarios we will assess the risk of contracting certain diseases, say, Malaria and prescribe medication accordingly.

Vaccinations can be given at this initial consultation but some vaccinations require a course of injections so we would advise you to contact the surgery as soon as your trip has been arranged to allow time for this. All travel vaccinations have to be paid for at the time they are given and most health insurance policies do not cover this.
