Why do I have to submit my pre-travel questionnaire 8 weeks before my departure date?
Some vaccinations will require a course of injections and will need time to be fully effective. You will need to allow for this and will need to start your vaccinations well in advance of your travel date. If you do not allow enough time before you travel, we may not be able to offer you an appointment early enough for you to have the full protection of the vaccinations prior to the date of travel. This is likely to put your health at considerable risk when you do travel.
What if I can’t submit my questionnaire 8 weeks before my departure date?
Should you be unable to submit your questionnaire 8 weeks prior to your departure date then an emergency private appointment may be offered to you. Private appointments cost £20 for a 15 minute appointment with the travel nurse and this does not include the cost of private vaccinations; however NHS vaccines will not incur an extra charge if you are eligible.(see Travel Vaccinations Price List for details)
Why do I have to pay for some vaccinations?
Private patients will be required to pay for all vaccinations - including those available on the NHS. Not all vaccinations are available on the NHS; some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. Where there is a charge for a vaccination payment will need to be made in advance of your appointment. Click the link to view the Travel Vaccinations Price List.
Vaccine charges apply regardless of the patient’s age.
If you are travelling to Altitude or to a remote area we are able to offer a consultation with a doctor to discuss any medication requirements. This can be either a telephone or face to face consultation. There will be an additional charge for this service. Please discuss your requirements with the Travel Nurse who will be able to give further advice
When and where does the clinic take place?
Travel Clinic appointments are currently offered on a Friday at St Margaret’s Surgery, Bradford on Avon.
