Penn Hill Surgery

Travel health

Please note that our nurses no longer provide travel advice over the phone.

The patients can book in with the Practice Nurses to receive TETANUS, HEPATITIS A and TYPHOID Boosters – as these vaccines ARE provided by the NHS for Public Health Services – all Travel health advice and other vaccines must be provided by a private travel clinic.

Anyone travelling abroad who wishes to know about travel needs to go to a Private Travel Clinic:

You can request a printout of the vaccine record that we hold in the surgery on the electronic notes – this may not include all of the vaccines you have received or vaccines that may be recorded in your paper notes.

If you have complicated medical conditions – you could book in with your GP to discuss your health in regards to travel. However – this is not a ‘Travel appointment’ and deals with your health, rather than the fact that you are travelling to a specific place.
