Travel Clinic

If you are travelling within the next 8 weeks, please download a Travel risk assessment form or collect one from the surgery at either of our sites. Once completed and returned, your information will be reviewed by a nurse and you will be contacted. If required a travel appointment will also be booked.

Due to the current shortage of Yellow Fever Vaccine, we are only able to offer the vaccine to patients registered with North Street Medical Care.

We are pleased to be able to offer a comprehensive foreign travel advisory service which includes the supply and administration of most of the vaccines, medications and health related products you will need for your travel plans.

Some patients, especially back packers and those travelling to Far East countries, may be asked to attend our travel clinic once the travel clinic forms are completed. Our travel trained practice nurses runs this clinic with support from Dr Burack.

There will be a charge for the following vaccinations if required:

  • Rabies
  • Japanese Encephalitis
  • Cholera
  • Hepatitis B
  • Yellow Fever.

There will also be a charge for private prescriptions for travel drugs. We will advise you if any of these are required and inform you of the current prices for each vaccine. Payment must be made in full at the time of your appointment. We accept cash or cheque which must be guaranteed by a cheque card and made one week before vaccinations are given in order for the cheque to clear. See poster in waiting room for up to date prices. All attendees of our travel clinic will receive an up to date health-related travel guide. We also offer a travel service to private patients. Details of fees are available from reception.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

 

 Europe & Russia  North America
 Central America  South America
 Carribean  Africa
 Middle East  Central Asia
 East Asia  Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.  Your second appointment needs to 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.
