Holiday and Foreign Travel Vaccinations and Advice

vaccination6It is important that people travelling abroad have the latest information and guidance about possible health risks before they travel. We are delighted to be teamed up with JDRhealthcare to offer our patients a convenient and quick travel health service. JDRHealthcare is run by a Specialist Travel Nurse, who is fully qualified to provide advice, guidance and vaccinations. For further information please ask out administration team.

Please note that certain elements of the travel vaccination scheme are classed as a non-NHS service and, as such, we are not obliged to provide this service.

The practice procedure for patients requesting travel vaccination is as follows:

1.  Complete a travel vaccination request form. This must be done and the forms can be collected from reception or downloaded from our website.

Please Hand in your form AT LEAST 8 WEEKS prior to travel. Courses of vaccinations such as Rabies Immunisation is a 28 day course of treatment that needs to be given at intervals and needs time to take effect.

2. Please then contact Derek Ramsay on Tel. 01577 527597 or Mobile: 07967622186. Please 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 and 5.30pm.

3.  Realise that some vaccinations and anti-malarial drugs are chargeable and are not provided on the NHS. If you require a ‘private’ vaccination such as Yellow Fever, there will be a charge for this.
