We have access to Travel Advice and Immunisations
Are you planning or have you booked a trip abroad and are seeking travel health advice? Dr Khuroo’s Surgery offers a travel clinic service which is led by our Practice Nurses.
We would first ask you complete a travel risk assessment form so we can assess your risk, the recommended vaccines, any necessary malaria tablets (if you’re travelling to a malarious region) and the advice most appropriate for your needs. Once you have completed this form you can bring it to the surgery and we can book you in with the Practice Nurse.
We regret that no traveller will be seen without a completed risk assessment form.
Under the services a GP provides for travel, there is an obligation to give vaccines to provide protection against hepatitis A, typhoid and tetanus, polio and diphtheria and travel advice free of charge.
Other vaccines are not free on the NHS and we usually have to make a charge. Please enquire as to the cost of these.
To help us give you the best possible care, it is essential that you help us in our work by following the instructions below.
Every potential traveller MUST complete a travel risk assessment form.
How do you do this?
We would also ask you to go to www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk and look up the destination you are travelling to, print off the information, read it and bring with you when you attend your appointment
Please download our pre-appointment information letter, which will give you some ideas about what happens in your travel appointment.
