Travel Vaccination

We offer wide and comprehensive services to both our patients and anyone who needs travel advice. We offer vaccinations, travel packs and any certificates needed for your foreign travel.
Please make an appointment at least eight weeks in advance of your holiday to ensure adequate immunisation cover. We hold a full stock of vaccines at the surgery. Charges are available at reception.

Our Travel Vaccination services are available to patients not registered with the practice.



USEFUL ADVICE PRIOR TO TRAVELLING ABROAD

  1. Please remember that if you suffer from any medical conditions or take long-term medication, you should discuss your particular needs with either the doctor or the travel nurse at least 4 weeks before you travel.
  2. In some countries you need anti-malarial protection even if you are a native of the country to which you are travelling.
    If you have lived abroad for a long time, you do not have the same immunity against malaria as a native person actually living in that particular country.
  3. Make sure that you take an adequate supply of your regular medications.
  4. During the flight, eat a light meal and avoid alcohol: it is easy to become dehydrated, particularly during a long haul flight. Adequate hydration will help with jet lag.

FOR FURTHER ADVICE AND HELP, PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH EITHER THE TRAVEL NURSE OR THE DOCTOR.

ACUPUNCTURE & CHINESE REMEDIAL MASSAGE
(TUI NA)

We believe that many illnesses can be helped and, in some cases, fully treated with a different approach to western medicine. For thousands of years it has been an effective system of health care in China. It restores motivating energy. Acupuncture and Tui Na can be used in the treatment of many conditions and can successfully complement any conventional treatment. Our resident highly experienced Acupuncturist has been treating our patients for the last 8 years.
