In order for us to assess you travel needs we will need to have certain information about you and your planned trip. Before an appointment can be booked please complete the following Travel Questionnaire and either then post it to us or drop it in to the surgery, or alternatively email it as an attachment to: firstname.lastname@example.org The questionnaire will be reviewed by a member of the travel clinic team and, the surgery will contact you to arrange an appointment.
Please note that safe travel medicine is not ‘last minute’, so please remember to submit your questionnaire at least 6-8 weeks before your holiday.
You will not be offered an appointment and your questionnaire will not be processed if your date of travel is less than 4 weeks from the date of submission. We do not offer last minute appointments.
