Our practice has an in-house travel vaccination service which is fully stocked, competitively priced and up to date. We are a registered Yellow Fever Centre. We house anti-malarial drugs.
We provide a travel health service to all our private patients as well as corporate clients. We are used to assessing individuals prior to short and long-term work assignments all over the world. You do not need to be registered with the practice to receive travel vaccinations, and we will always take a comprehensive travel health history and ask you to bring any previous vaccination records you may hold.
Specific recommendations for countries and diseases as detailed by Public Health England can be found at http://travelhealthpro.org.uk/. TravelHealthPro is the website comprising the travel health resources of the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC).
