Travel Advice

Our practice nurse will be pleased to give advice to those patients going abroad. Please allow adequate time in order for any vaccine(s) to become effective. Certain vaccines are chargeable; please ask at the time of booking.

Well before travelling abroad, check with your travel agent or the tourist office/embassy of the country you intend to visit on any special precautions you may need to take.

At least two months before departure, discuss any vaccination requirements with the practice nurse. Pack a small first aid kit containing adhesive dressings, insect repellent, antiseptic cream and water purification tablets etc. Your pharmacist can advise.

When abroad, check the quality of the drinking water. If in doubt, either drink only bottled water or use water purification tablets. Avoid ice in drinks as this may have been made from suspect water. Raw vegetables, salads and fresh fruits should be carefully washed in clean water. If in doubt, stick to freshly cooked food.

Beware of the sun! Use a high factor sunscreen especially in the first few days of exposure. Children in particular should be closely monitored in this respect.

In hot climates, drink plenty of non-alcoholic drinks. If you are not passing water regularly you are not drinking enough.

If you fall ill on your return, don’t forget to tell your doctor you have travelled abroad.
