PLEASE CONTACT US AT LEAST 6 WEEKS BEFORE YOU INTEND TO TRAVEL
If you are possibly planning or have booked a trip abroad and are seeking travel health advice, The Brow Medical Centre offers a travel clinic service with our travel specialist nurse.
We would first ask you to complete a travel risk assessment form, so we can assess your risk, the recommended vaccines, any necessary malaria tablets (if you are travelling to a malarious region) and the advice most appropriate for your needs. Once you have completed and returned this form to the practice, you will need to make an appointment with Scarlet.
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, free of charge protection against hepatitis A, typhoid and tetanus, polio and diphtheria and travel advice. However if there is not enough time before you travel or you require to be seen at specific times or days of the week then you may want to investigate private travel clinics in Sussex.
The Brow Medical Centre are pleased to be able to offer a more specialist service with a greater choice of vaccines you may require, for example rabies, hepatitis B which you would otherwise have to travel to a private travel clinic for. These vaccines are not free on the NHS. At this present time payment can only be made by cheque or cash.
|Hepatitis B||£50 per injection - course of 3|
|Hepatitis B Paediatric||£40 per injection|
|Meningitis ACWY||£80 per injection for travel|
|Rabies||£80 per injection - course of 2 or 3|
|Malaria||£15 per prescription |
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? Fill in the form below and contact reception to make an appointment.
Alternatively, you need to collect a form directly from the surgery, complete and return it.
Please arrange a travel consultation with our practice nurse, by contacting reception.
We would also ask you to go to the Fit for Travel website (www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk) and look up the destination you are travelling to, print off the information, read it and bring it with you when you attend your appointment.
We have produced a general travel health advice leaflet that gives you helpful information on how to keep yourself healthy on your trip.
