AS COVID RESTRICTIONS START TO RELAX, WE HOPE TO RE-ESTABLISH OUR NEW TRAVEL CLINIC AS OF SEPTEMBER 2020

Our Nurses can provide comprehensive travel health advice and arrange for appropriate vaccinations. We strongly advise you to check your requirements at least six to eight weeks before travel, as sometimes a course of up to three vaccinations needs to be given over the course of several weeks.

It is your responsibility to ascertain which vaccinations (and, if relevant, anti-malaria tablets) you need, and also to inform yourself fully of recommended travel safe precautions. To do this, you should visit here and read the information relevant to the country you are visiting.  Those intending to go back-packing or with a complicated itinerary should ideally contact the surgery several months in advance.

Please fill in our Travel Assessment form outlined below and one of our team will respond to you within 7-10 working days recommending the vaccinations you require for your trip.  Please be advised some vaccinations are not offered free on the NHS and will need to be paid for in advance of appointments.  Please click here for up to date prices.

For all advice on travel care including general health and malaria click here to read our Travel Advice Leaflet.  If you prefer please collect a leaflet from our reception team.

Please note if you are NOT a patient at The Grange Surgery please complete the travel questionnaire and email a brief summary of your medical records to sehccg.thegrangetravelclinic@nhs.net before we are able to offer you an appointment.  Please remember we require at least 6 to 8 weeks notice prior to you travelling.
