General Information for Patients Planning on Travelling
There are appointments available for travel consultations each day. The practice provides a full range of immunisations and advice on travel at these consultations. Please allow at least four weeks to have your vaccinations before you travel!
For extended travel we suggest that you commence your vaccination schedule 8 weeks prior to travel as further appointments may be required. Please note that appointments may not be available at less than 7 days prior to travel. In the event of this situation we advice you to contact the Nomad Travel Clinic on 0117 922 6567.
