- Travel Appointment:
If you're planning a trip abroad please call the surgery and you will be given an assessment appointment with our specially trained nurse.
- Please Allow Plenty of Time:
Patients are advised to allow plenty of time for vaccinations (at least two or three months) especially if traveling to an out-of-the-way place where they'll be living or working among local people. Some courses of vaccine such as rabies or Hepatitis B need to be given over several weeks.
If you require a prescription for vaccinations this will be ready to collect 2 working days following your appointment.
It is always a wise precaution to pack some essential items in case of illness on holiday. Do choose medicines according to your needs and the country you are intending to visit. lf you take prescription medicines regularly remember to pack them too.
You may want to consider packing the following:
- Paracetamol Travel Sickness tablets Plasters and a small crepe bandage
- Rehydration solutions such as Dioralyte, Anti diarrhoeal e.g. lmodium
- High factor sunscreen
- Anti material tablets, Water purification tablets, Insect repellent
- Condoms and other contraceptives
- Sunhats for yourself and children
In many tropical countries, mosquitoes can spread diseases such as dengue, chikungunya, West Nile, malaria, yellow fever and Zika. Here are five simple rules you should follow to reduce your risk of infections spread by mosquitoes.
Our Health Organisations, Travel section contains lots of useful links to help Travellers.
We offer most of the travel health service at no additional charge to the patient. However the NHS does not cover the cost of all the treatments you may need. Therefore, for some services you may need to pay.
Malaria Tablets are NOT provided on the NHS and sometimes can be bought 'over the counter' or may require a private prescription. The nurse can advise regarding this or you could discuss with your pharmacist. REMEMBER some tablets have to be started at least one week before you travel and you need continue to take them when you return to the UK for the advised length of time.
A course of vaccinations may be recommended. Please see the Practice Nurse well in advance for foreign travel. These vaccinations are only available at our Heath Hayes Surgery. Price on application.
