Please note that currently travel appointments for all patients will take place at Milford Medical Centre.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine and you may need a second appointment which should be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
