Travel requirements are constantly changing and so we only offer travel services in the dedicated travel clinic.

Travel Clinic

  • Travel appointments should be made 4 weeks prior to your holiday as vaccinations take 10 days to provide immunity
  • Please complete & return a travel form at least 1 week prior to your travel appointment
  • You may hand-in a completed form to our reception or post back to St Johns Surgery for the attention of travel nurses (who will undertake a travel risk assessment prior to your appointment

Note – If you are planning a more adventurous holiday (for example, a backpacking trip) then you should attend a travel appointment 6 months prior to your travels. This is because some immunisations require a more complex course of vaccinations.
