In order to assist us to make a full assessment of the potential risks to your health from your planned travel, we would ask you to complete a Travel risk assessment form at least 6 weeks before you travel. The completed form can be brought in person, posted or emailed. Once an assessment has been done by the nurse she will then send you a text message advising if any vaccination/medication is needed and the cost. Please download the Travel Risk Assessment Form or ask for a paper copy from our reception desk.
