Foreign travel advice

Health advice

If you are planning to travel abroad, please complete our Travel Risk Assessment form (PDF, 64kb), and return it to the surgery as soon as possible. Once we have received your form, it will be reviewed by the nurse, who will assess what vaccinations you need and book an appointment with you

Further health advice can be found on the Fit For Travel website

General advice

Preparing for travelling:

  • Allow plenty of time for a pre-travel consultation; this appointment should be approximately 6-8 weeks before you travel
  • A dental check-up before you travel may prevent problems while you are away
  • Take out adequate insurance for your destination and activities
    A European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) entitles you to free or reduced rate medical care in most EU countries. You can apply for one free of charge online (www.dh.gov.uk), by phone (0845 606 2030), or by post using a form from the Post Office
  • Pack a first aid kit (a sterile kit of emergency equipment may be a good idea if you are going somewhere remote)
  • Find out about the place you are travelling, the British Government website contains information and up to date advice on travelling abroad, including information about risks in specific countries

General travel advice can be found on the British Government website
