The practice nursing team offer a travel advice and vaccination service.
If you plan to travel abroad please contact the practice as soon as possible before your departure.
When you book in to the travel clinic the following information will be required;
- Departure ... when you will be travelling
- Destination ... where you are going
- Duration ... how long you will be travelling for
Prior to your appointment the Nurse will research the vaccinations that you need. You will then be offered advice and vaccinations during your twenty minute travel consultation. You may be asked to return to the surgery for follow up vaccinations or for vaccinations that may need to be ordered.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO CONTACT THE PRACTICE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE PRIOR TO TRAVEL - this is very important as some vaccines may need to be ordered, and some also require time to take effect.

THE EXETER TRAVEL CLINIC
Travel vaccination advice is also available from The Exeter Travel Clinic...
Address: Travel Health Consultancy, 22 Southernhay West, Exeter, EX1 1PR
Telephone: 01392 430590
To visit the Exeter Travel Clinic website please click here.
If you intend to travel, please contact the Exeter Travel Clinic as soon as possible before departure for advice. Ideally this should be at least six weeks before you travel, as an appointment may be required for you to receive vaccinations, which may have to be ordered. Your vaccination appointment needs to be at least two weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
