We will be happy to advise you on immunisations and other preparations necessary to ensure your holiday abroad is a healthy one.
How do I access the Travel Clinic?
Download the travel assesment form and advice form from ‘Our Documents’.
The Travel Risk Assessment Form needs to be completed and returned to the surgery. before you can book your appointment.
Travel vaccines can be very complex and numerous factors have to be taken into consideration when giving travel advice and vaccinations. To help the Travel Nurses assess your travel needs it is important that they are in receipt of the risk assessment form before your appointment.
Travel Clinic Appointments
Please allow as much notice as possible when booking your Travel Clinic Appointment.
Even if several weeks notice has been given, it may be that travellers requiring several vaccinations will need to go elsewhere to obtain some of their vaccinations.
If you require travel advice and injections, you will need to complete a Risk Assessment Form prior to attending your initial assessment appointment. This Risk Assessment Form can be downloaded from this site or collected from Reception.
Failure to Attend Appointment
If you fail to keep your travel clinic appointment without giving adequate cancellation notice, you will not be able to book a further Travel Clinic appointment at the Porch Surgery. See other options below.
