In order to balance the demand in appointments, we are streamlining the way we manage our travel appointments.
Patients who are travelling will need to obtain their immunisation history (this is available online for those with online Patient Access) or can be requested via the reception desk. This information can be used in conjunction with the travel health information website to determine if vaccinations and an appointment is needed:
There is no longer a need to hand in the travel questionnaire in advance of booking an appointment, this form can be filled in and brought to your appointment on the day.
We have limited appointments in the system for travel vaccinations and you are advised to attend your appointment, well in advance of travelling (6 weeks or more) in order to ensure vaccinations are effective for the time of travelling.
Currently, due to staffing levels, patients are advised that there is limited appointment availability and that there may be a wait of 8-10 weeks for a travel appointment.
If there are no appointments available for travel vaccinations in the time frame you require, you have the option to book an appointment with a local private travel clinic. Please click here to see the documents regarding travel.
Thank you for your co-operation. (Updated December 2019)
These are the travel vaccinations we give at Elliott Hall, that are given free of charge according to NHS Guidelines.
- Diptheria/ Tetanus/ Polio (DTP) 3 in 1 injection. Lasts for 10 years.
- Typhiod- One injection lasts for 3 years.
- Hepatitis A- One injection lasts for 1 year. If you have had two injections it will last for at least 25 years.
If you need any other travel vaccinations you should visit a travel clinic. Please be aware that some vaccinations require a course of 2-3 injections over a period of one month to ensure adequate protection before you travel.
Please take this into consideration when booking appointments.
We do not issue prescriptions for Malaria Tablets - as these can be purchased from a pharmacy

When travelling abroad we recommend that you take advice on the health risks and that you do this at least two months in advance of travelling. If you are embarking on a complex itinerary then we need information on all the destinations you intend to travel to , even if its a stop over.
