Travel Health


Our practice nurses are available by appointment to offer medical advice regarding travel and vaccinations where appropriate. Please complete the online form with as much information as possible. Once you submit the form our nurse will look at your travel plans and contact you to discuss.   If you leave it too close to departure we may not be able to complete the course or have availabilty with our nurses. You may be directed to Boots Travel Centre in Kendal. 

Our nurses can provide travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 8 - 12 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.
