Travel Advice and Vaccinations

Whether for business or pleasure, your travels will always be more enjoyable in good health.

International Health Questionaire Form

We provide a convenient one stop shop offering comprehensive travel health advice, all travel vaccinations and first aid health kits to make your preparations as smooth as possible.

Our staff are experienced in providing travel health services, have access to up to date travel health software and will adapt your travel health plan to your personal needs and itinerary.

We recommend having a travel health consult at least six weeks prior to you departure date as some vaccinations can take time to reach maximum immunity prior to your travel or you may be required to have a course of vaccinations depending on your vaccination history and areas you are travelling to.

As travel medicine can be quite complex we are unable to offer telephone consultations.

Please allow at least 1 hour for your first consultation and there may be a need to stay on site after any vaccinations are administered. Our staff will be able to advise of an estimation of time when you make your booking. Please complete our International Health Questionaire form and bring along to your first appointment.
