Travel Information

luggage_tags

It is important that people travelling abroad have the very latest information and guidance about possible health risks before they travel. We are delighted that we have teamed up with JDRhealthcare to offer our patients a convenient and quick travel health service. JDRhealthcare is run by a Specialist Travel Nurse, Derek Ramsay, who is fully qualified to provide advice, guidance and vaccinations. 

The majority of travel vaccinations are not available free on the NHS. There is a fee for these vaccinations which is detailed at the end of this leaflet.  A small number of travel vaccinations are available free on the NHS.   These will continue to be provided free of charge (as long as we have 8 weeks’ notice).  If less than 8 weeks’ notice is provided, they will be issued on a private basis and a charge will be applicable.

ADVICE/APPOINTMENTS

If you require travel advice or vaccinations please contact Derek Ramsay on Tel: 01577 527597 or Mobile: 07967622186 http://www.totaltravelhealth.co.uk Please ensure you let Derek know you are a Dollar Health Centre patient.  Derek will book you an appointment if required. A clinic will be held in the health centre on a Wednesday between 3.30pm & 5.30pm.

Also download our travel forms (or collect from the surgery), a set per person and hand back into the health centre. Please give as much information as possible about your trip available before attending your appointment. The regions within any countries you are travelling to, any flight stopovers, your accommodation and activities whilst there etc.

TIMESCALES

Travel vaccinations are often given in courses and take time for immunity to develop. Ideally advice should be sought at least 8 weeks before travel. However Derek is happy to offer advice/treatment at shorter notice. Please note that it is not possible for us to provide these vaccinations on the NHS without 8 weeks’ notice.

OTHER OPTIONS

We have teamed up with JDRhealthcare as we believe it offers a convenient service to our patients. There is no obligation for Dollar Health Centre patients to use this service.   Other private travel clinics are available locally. Should you have any queries regarding the service please contact Fiona McGirr, Practice Manager 01259 742120.
