Travel Clinic

We provide advice on all health aspects of holiday travel including which vaccinations are needed and if necessary the need for malaria tablets, which are available from pharmacies or on a private prescription. It pays to plan well ahead! Please book an appointment with one of our practice nurses well before you are due to travel, at least 8 weeks if possible. You will be advised by the Practice Nurse of any costs which will have to be paid before you are given your vaccination(s). If no appointments are available with our nurses before you plan to travel, you will be advised to attend the private Travel Clinic in Newcastle which can usually fit patients in at short notice, or some local pharmacies in the area e.g Lloyds, Superdrug, also provide this service. Our GPs do not give travel vaccinations.
