Vaccinations, medication and travel advice

Travel Assessment

We offer a full travel advice and immunisation service. If you are travelling abroad please complete and submit the travel form in plenty of time (we recommend 6-8 weeks) before your journey.

We are an accredited Yellow Fever Centre and will be able to look after your travel immunisation needs.

Regular Medication
If you are planning to be away longer than three months, you may have to see a doctor in the country you are visiting to get a prescription for your regular medication. The Department of Health recommends that NHS prescriptions should not be given for more than 3 months’ supply

Do you need vaccinations?

Before you travel, it’s important to find out whether you will need vaccinations for the country you’re visiting. In some cases immunisations need to be given at least 6 weeks before travelling and some vaccinations require a course of two or three doses over a 21 to 28 day period. The following website will help you.
