Travel Health & Immunisations

We pleased to offer our registered patients a travel health service.

Our nurse uses up to date information to advise you on your health needs related to destinations around the world. They can administer most vaccinations and provide prescriptions for treatments where needed.

Many people are taking long haul holidays requiring complicated courses of vaccines. To assist you in these requirements we stock a large amount of travel related health promotion material, and have links to travel related websites below.

May we take this opportunity to wish you a pleasant trip!
