Travel Consultations

Single Travel Consultation from £40

Due to COVID-19 all appointments will be by phone or video initially, using common platforms such as Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp or Facetime.  If a face-to-face physical appointment is required this will be arranged by the Doctor.

For non-travel vaccinations see Vaccinations

Travel Consultations are available at selected Docster practices that offer Travel Medicine Clinics.

Yellow Fever Vaccinations are available at Docster Practices that are designated Yellow Fever Vaccination Centres.

Ideally please book your travel consultation 6 weeks before your scheduled departure to allow time for any vaccine courses you may need.  However, we realise this isn't always possible and you can still book a travel consultation closer to your departure date.

You can check the FitForTravel and TravelHealthPro websites to find out what travel vaccinations you may require.  These websites also contains a wealth of other useful travel health advice.

Each patient who attends a Travel Consultation will have an individual risk assessment with a Doctor or Travel Nurse.  This includes an assessment of your current health and an assessment of the risks associated with your destination, activities and modes of travel.

In addition to advice on vaccinations and malaria prevention a travel consultation includes advice on non-vaccine-preventable and non-prophylaxis-preventable diseases, care in the sun, food and water hygiene, insect repellents, safe sex, managing existing conditions while travelling, self care for many travel related illnesses and problems, and preparation of a travel self care kit.

Only one trip can be assessed in a single travel consultation so if you are planning another trip then a separate appointment should be made for this.

There is a fee of £30 per person for travel consultations.   Discounts are available for couples and families.
