Redwell Medical Centre

Travel Clinic

We offer vaccinations and advice about foreign travel in this clinic. It is a 20 minute appointment and we ask that you cancel in good time if you are unable to attend for any reason.

Please note that not all vaccinations are available on the NHS and there may be a charge for some.

Some vaccinations take as long as 4 weeks to become fully effective, you must make your travel clinic appointment with one of our experienced travel nurses at least 6 weeks before you travel.

Complete the Travel Patient Questionnaire and Consent Form.

You must complete the travel and patient questionnaire and consent form above and bring it to our Treatment Area.

The receptionists will advise you if you need to make a travel clinic appointment.

However, if you have travelled during the previous 12 months, you will be asked to contact the treatment area a week later, when you will be advised whether your vaccinations are up to date or if a travel clinic appointment is necessary.

Remember you might find a great last-minute holiday – but we can’t do a last minute vaccination!
