If you are thinking of travelling abroad and will need travel vaccinations, we require your completed travel assessment form at least 10-12 weeks before you wish to travel. It is very difficult to forecast demand for travel appointments, so whilst we endeavour to accomodate patients requests, there may be very busy times when we cannot offer you an appointment within yourrequired timescale, and will advise you of other options. We are unable to offer a last minute travel vaccination service.
