Travel medicine

Our practice is able to help you with all your travel vaccination needs.

Our Doctors are able to prescribe the medication needed and if an immunisation is required our practice nurse is able to administer the injection.

The Department of Health advises patients to research every country they will be visiting and to get advice from a doctor that is tailored to their health needs.

Overseas travel exposes you to wonderful new experiences, but it can also expose you to potentially serious health risks. Remember – your health is your responsibility – with a bit of preparation, you can prevent an illness that could ruin your holiday.

The risk of acquiring an infection and the appropriate preventative measures can be different for older travellers, children, pregnant women or those with underlying chronic diseases.

There are some things you need to keep in mind to prevent illness, like preventing insect bites and being careful of what you eat. 

When you return, keep an eye on your health. Some diseases may not become apparent until you have returned home.
