Advice and immunisation is available, in accordance with Public Health guidelines. If you are due to travel abroad please ask for one of our travel health questionnaires or complete the online version below. It is essential that the forms are completed and returned at least a week before your appointment in order to allow the nurse to assess your needs.
The nurse will assess your vaccination requirements, but we also advise you to have some prior awareness of travel health issues by visiting www.fitfortravel.scot.nhs.uk
If you prefer not to use the service at the surgery then click here to visit the Masta website which gives advice and immunisations.
It is important contact us as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
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.
