Travel Clinics

Who is the clinic for?

The clinic is for any of our patients who are planning a holiday or trip outside of the United Kingdom.

What is the purpose of the clinic?

The clinic provides up to date information on immunisations and appropriate precautions to take whilst travelling abroad.

All travellers should be up to date with tetanus and polio immunisations (within the past 10 years) if you are travelling outside Western Europe. You may need other immunisations or anti-malarial tablets.

If you think that you will need vaccinations before you travel we ask that you try to book your appointment with the travel nurse well in advance of your departure date, at least 6 – 8 weeks before travel.

Please note:

Morland House Surgery is only able to provide vaccinations that are available on the NHS. This includes Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio, Hepatitis A and Typhoid.

Private vaccinations such as Hepatitis B, Rabies, Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis and Tick Borne Encephalitis are only available at Private Travel Clinics and you will need to make your own arrangements if you think you need any of these vaccinations.

Please see Travel Health Information here.
