Travel Services

When traveling the world it is essential to protect yourself from the sorts of diseases you may encounter whilst away. Vaccinations against infectious disease are a major part of this protection and we encourage you to book to see our Practice Nurse in our travel clinic to discuss your travel plans and what immunisations and possible malaria protection you will need. Many need to be given weeks or even months before you depart so don't leave it too late.

We offer a full range of vaccinations and are a registered Yellow Fever centre. A charge will be made for certain vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS. A list of these charges is available at reception.
