Find out more about how our nurses can assist you in preparing to travel…
Our practice nurses are able to provide travel health advice and information, in a consultation before your trip.
If any vaccinations are suggested which are available on the NHS, our nurses can administer them for you.
Please note that some vaccinations are not provided on the NHS, and we do notoffer private travel vaccinations. You can visit https://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/destinations to check the recommended vaccinations for your destination.
Vaccinations commonly needed for travel that can be provided on the NHS include:
- Hepatitis A (1x vaccine)
- Typhoid (1x vaccine)
- Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio (1x vaccine)
If any vaccinations other than those listed above are recommended for your destination, you will have to consult with a private travel clinic to get them done. Please try to have your private vaccinations done before you come for your appointment here, although we understand this may not always be possible.
There are many private travel clinics available in Leeds which can be found easily through an online search engine.
Please note that some courses require more than one dose over 28 days, and all vaccinations should be given at least two weeks prior to travel.
How do I book in for a travel consultation?
The nursing team kindly request that, if you would like to book a travel consultation, please could you fill out the following risk assessment form before you come in. The nurse will review your details and will contact you to book an appointment.
