This Travel Clinic service is only available for the Registered Patients of the Market Deeping and Glinton Surgeries, with the exception of Yellow Fever Immunisations which are available for everyone.
Before travelling overseas (including Europe), it is important to be aware of the possible health risks and how to prevent problems, or minimise the chances of them occurring. Most importantly, you should know:
Whether there are any specific health risks in the country you are travelling to for which you need to take precautions - for example, malaria
- how to avoid becoming ill when you are abroad
- what to do if you do become ill when you are abroad
- how to get emergency medical treatment when you are abroad
Our Travel Clinics offer advice on travel illnesses and a full range of vaccinations.
Booking an Appointment in our Travel Clinic
Please note that the practice has no obligation to provide last minute travel clinic appointments and due to demand we usually cannot help at short notice.
We strongly recommend that you book appointments at least six weeks before you travel as vaccination does not gave immediate effective coverage.
Prior to ringing the practice to book an appointment in our Travel Clinics, patients are asked to complete and submit the Travel Health Questionnaire online to enable us to offer the best advice as possible - please do NOT print the form.
The exception to this is if your travel requirements are business related, in which case you should contact the surgery on 01778 579000 as there may not be a requirement to complete the questionnaire.
Once you have submitted the questionnaire a member of the practice travel clinic team will contact you within 3 working days to book an appointment. Please ensure that the Practice has your up to date contact details.
Within the basic travel service provision are vaccinations for Hepatitis A and B for travel (not occupational reasons) typhoid, tetanus, diphtheria and polio plus all combination vaccines with any of these antigens are provided under the NHS.
Non NHS Vaccinations
All remaining travel immunisations are NOT provided as part of NHS services and therefore a private fee is chargeable.
These include: Yellow Fever, Rabies, Japanese B Encephalitis, Tick Borne Encephalitis, Meningitis ACWY and Cholera
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our staff will be happy to advise you about them when arranging your appointment.
A full list of these services and their fees is available here.
PAYMENT- The total fee charged incorporates the cost of the vaccine and administering the vaccine. Charges are set by individual practices.
