If you have a medical emergency, please contact the nearest health services to where you are staying. We offer a range of foreign travel immunisations . You usually require 8-10 weeks to have the course. The practice nurse can give up to date advice regarding your travel. If you require your current immunity status, speak to reception. You will be advised at the first consultation of any costs involved.
