Denbridge Surgery Travel Clinic
Denbridge Surgery provides a Travel Clinic which offers advice and NHS vaccinations. NHS vaccinations include diphtheria with poliomyelitis and tetanus, hepatitis A and typhoid. Some travel destinations require vaccination against a variety of other diseases such as yellow fever, rabies or malaria. Vaccination against these conditions is not available on the NHS and, therefore, if you require these vaccinations we would recommend that you attend a specialist Travel Clinic. There are a large number of these clinics available in Glasgow.
If you are unsure which travel vaccinations you may require, the NHS 'Fit for Travel' website provides a lot of useful information which may be of assistance. The website address for this site is www.fitfortravel.NHS.uk. If you remain unsure, then please make an appointment at our Travel Clinic and our practice nurse will be able to give you detailed advice.
If you wish to make an appointment at our Travel Clinic, please download and fill out the travel questionnaire (see below) and hand it into Reception at the surgery. The receptionist will then either give you an appointment to see the nurse or will take contact details for the nurse to 'phone you with further advice.
We would ask that you attend the Travel Clinic at least 6 to 8 weeks before travel and 3 to 6 months before prolonged travel. Please bring along any records of previous vaccinations such as childhood, school and occupational vaccinations.
