TRAVEL CONSULTATIONS

As from  the 1st August 2014 we will no longer be offering travel vaccinations or consultations.  

 

Due to the high demand for GP and nurse appointments and the complexities of providing a full robust travel health service, anyone needing travel consultations/vaccinations is advised to contact  the MASTA travel clinic:    www. masta-travel -health.com

 

MASTA offers clinics with up-to-date information regarding all aspects of travel health and vaccine requirements.  Unlike general practice, MASTA has access to the full range of vaccines as well as being able to facilitate appointments at short notice.    The following websites also offer good information on general travel health along with vaccination requirements:

 

www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/               http://nathnac.org.uk/

 

We have not taken this decision lightly:  each patient seen for travel advice/vaccinations takes three general appointments and for a family of four this would mean twelve fewer appointments available out of the working day.  We are happy to continue to dispense private prescriptions for Malaria tablets upon request.


There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make your initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
