Travel immunisations

We run regular travel clinics .  This provides up-to-date health related travel advice, including information about appropriate vaccinations, malaria prevention, advice about protection from the sun and other travel health and safety issues.

Ideally appointments should be made at least six weeks prior to travel, but please contact us if later as some courses of vaccines have provision for an accelerated schedule. It would help us plan your individual programme of vaccinations if you could come for your appointments with information about the proposed destination, particularly with regard to complicated travel schedules.
