We currently offer a travel health service and aim to provide travellers with advice for safe travel which may or may not include travel vaccination.
When you book your trip is when you should print off, complete and return to reception the questionnaire below then make an appointment for the travel clinic. A minimum of six weeks before travelling is required to allow adequate time to assess all requirements including vaccinations and malaria tablets if required.
Some vaccinations are available on the NHS but non NHS vaccines and malaria tablets can be provided as a private service for the following charges:
Travel Service Costs
- Private prescription £15.00 per item
- Vaccine or tablets - paid directly to the chemist and prices may vary
- Administering by the nurse £50.00 per course
- Capped rate £100 if you are having a wide range of vaccinations
- Single or booster injection £15.00
There are currently supply issues for some vaccines including Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio and Hep A. We have been advised by Health Protection Scotland to prioritise high risk patients meantime until the issues resolve. Depending on the type of trip, length of stay, planned activities etc. your risk is assessed by the travel nurse and will be discussed when you attend the travel clinic.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
