Travel Clinic

The Practice offers a travel advice and vaccination service for our patients.  In order for us to be able to ensure we can give vaccinations in good time before you travel, we need a minimum of 8 weeks notice before you leave the country but the earlier the better.  If you are travelling within 8 weeks you can contact Boots Pharmacy in Aviemore 01479 810259 or you can contact Alert Health 01463 710441 who can provide an urgent service.  In this instance we would be happy to give you a summary of the vaccinations we have on record.

There is now a lot of good information for travellers on line.  We recommend that you look at www.fitfortravel.nhs.net which will give you information about recommended vaccinations for your destination as well as up to date advice regarding malaria risk, altitude sickness, food and water safety and bite avoidance and prevention.

We would ask that once you have checked the fit for travel website, you fill in our Pre-Travel Health Questionnaire.  This needs as much detail as you can give, as advice for certain vaccines depends on regions within countries as well as activities you are planning on undertaking whilst abroad.  Also, if you have had any vaccinations outside of the surgery, (i.e privately or when in a foreign country) please provide evidence of these if available.

Once completed the receptionist will make an appointment for a telephone consultation to confirm what is required by way of vaccinations and/or anti-malaria medication.  We can then organise prescriptions and appointments with the nurse for these.
