Our travel clinic is only available to patients registered at Lime Tree Surgery. It is important that you contact us as early as possible, because some vaccinations require more than one injection and require time to become effective.
If you require advice about what vaccinations you might need then click on the links below or alternatively call reception on 01903 264101 to check when you last had a Hepatitis A, Typhoid or Diptheria, Polio and Tetanus (Revaxis). You can also use the www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk website which provides you with the information you need to determine what vaccinations you require and if malaria medication is indicated.
If you require any of the above vaccinations (Hepatitis A, Typhoid or Revaxis), you can book an appointment at Lime Tree Surgery. These vaccinations are provided on the NHS.
For all other travel vaccinations, please contact a travel clinic.
The NHS accepts responsibility for supplying ongoing medication for temporary periods abroad of up to three months. If a person is going to be abroad for more than three months then all that the patient is entitled to at NHS expense is a sufficient supply of his/her regular medication to get to the destination and find an alternative supply of that medication.
