Travel Advice

Travel information for those travelling abroad

The travel service, run by the practice nurses, at the surgery suit the majority of our patients. But for a few patients, going to very exotic locations, we may need to advice you to go elsewhere for a small number of specialist travel vaccinations.

Fit for travel

To get the maximum benefit from the service we ask you to book in good time before you travel. It is also a good idea to check out the information on the Fit for travel website before you book your appointment.
