Travel Vaccine Clinic

Our Travel Vaccine Clinic offers most types of vaccines for protection whilst travelling abroad. A registration and medical history is taken by one of our doctors who shall then administer the vaccines depending on your needs.

An appointment is not always required, however appointments can be made in advance to ensure the vaccines are readily available.

There is a £50 consultation charge, which includes discussion of the travel, vaccine and delivering the injection. The vaccine cost is additional to the consultation fee.
