Going on holiday? Taking a gap year? Travelling abroad?

 

 

If you would like advice and / or vaccinations before travelling abroad:

 

1. Call into the surgery, at least 8 weeks before your date of travel (6 months if you have a complicated itinerary) to collect a travel questionnaire and information sheet (or these can be dowloaded by clicking on the links)

 

2. Complete and return the travel form to the surgery.

 

3. A member of the nursing staff will review your travel requirements.

 

4. You should be contacted within 2 weeks and an appointment made with a practice nurse if required.

 

Please note we are not travel advice specialists so may not be able to give full advice for all travellers and may advise you to attend a travel clinic for specialist advice and a risk assessment.

 

Applying for European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)

If you are a UK resident, you are entitled to medical treatment that may become necessary while on holiday, at a reduced cost or sometimes free, when temporarily visiting an EU country.

Only treatment under the country’s state scheme is covered. EHIC cards are only valid for 5 years. Make sure you check the expiry date before travelling. Visit www.ehic.org.uk for detailed information and how to apply.
