Travel Health and Immunisations

The practice offers travel advice to patients travelling outwith the UK who may require vaccination. We would encourage you to check which vaccines may be required by checking the Fit for Travel website.


Booking your Appointment with the Nurse

  • Please Allow Plenty of Time
    Patients are advised to allow plenty of time for vaccinations (eight weeks) especially if traveling to an out-of-the-way place where they'll be living or working among local people. Some courses of vaccine such as rabies or Hepatitis B need to be given over several weeks. We do not accept travel requests less than 8 weeks prior to travel, if you have less that eight weeks please contact a private travel clinic.
  • Travel Risk Assessment
    If you need to attend our Travel Clinic please complete a Travel Risk Assessment form (available from reception) with details of your proposed journey.
  • Travel Appointment
    Once you have completed your form please contact reception to arrange your travel clinic appointment with the nurse. For administration of any non NHS vaccinations there will be a charge of £12.50 per vaccination. Bonnybank Medical Practice do not offer all travel services. You may require to be referred to a travel clinic for additional services. If this is the case, please note that there will be additional charges for this.
  • Please provide as much information as possible
    This will help our nurse decide how best to meet your needs. As a minimum we require travel dates, all destinations and as much of your previous vaccination history as possible.

Travel Vaccination Charges

We offer the travel health service. However, the NHS does not cover the cost of all the treatments you may need. Therefore, for some services you may need to pay additional charges.

Malaria Tablets are NOT provided on the NHS and sometimes can be bought over-the-counter or may require a private prescription. The nurse can advise regarding this or you could discuss with your pharmacist. REMEMBER some tablets have to be started at least one week before you travel and you need continue to take them when you return to the UK for the advised length of time.
