Travel Health

Travel Questionnaire

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. Please note that we require at least 6 weeks to have your vaccines at the Practice. If you are travelling within 6 weeks, please see the section below detailing alternative options.

To help us offer the appropriate advice, you need to complete our online travel questionnaire. Alternatively, you can collect a copy from our reception.
Our reception team will then book you a telephone consultation with one of our Practice Nurses to discuss your travel vaccinations, and arrange your appointment to receive them. It is important that this is done as early as possible before you travel.

If you have completed the online form, we will book you into the next available telephone appointment and text you the details. Please allow 2-3 working days after your submission for us to process this. If this appointment is unsuitable, please contact us on 01539 718 080 option 1 to rearrange.

I’m travelling very soon (in 6 weeks or under), what should I do?

Please contact the practice directly and we will advise you. It may be the case that we recommend that you arrange to have your vaccines at a private travel clinic:

  • Manchester Airport Terminal 1, OH Unit. Tel: 0161 489 3962
  •, Wilmslow Health Centre. Tel: 01625 547 777
  • City Doc Blackpool, Whitworth Pharmacy, 292-294 Waterloo Road, Blackpool. Tel: 0845 026 0830

You can find details on our prescribing policy for patients travelling abroad here

Do I Need Vaccinations?

Our nurses can provide comprehensive travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.

Travel Vaccination Prices

The cost of a number of these vaccines are not covered by the NHS, and you will be charged for these. Please ask the Nurse who will be able to advise you, or see the ‘Non NHS Medical Services’ section of our website.

For the same reason, prescriptions for anti-malaria drugs are issued as private prescriptions. Some anti-malaria drugs are available over the counter. You need to check with the nurse first to ensure that the drug you are intending to take is appropriate for the area you intend travelling to.
