Travel advice

Travel clinics are available at Stowhealth for NHS patients registered at the Practice as well as non registered patients who require a private service. Travel questionnaires can be downloaded for you to complete and hand in at Reception at least 4 weeks before you travel. Please note that for some countries in Africa and Asia you will need a course of vaccinations that will require an appointment 3 months before your travel departure.

Please note that you need to have registered as a patient with Stowhealth prior to completing a travel questionnaire unless you are confident the vaccines you require are not available on the NHS and that you are in possession of a personal vaccination record.

We cannot give NHS travel advice and vaccinations to patients who are not registered at Stowhealth.

NHS patients are also classified as:

  • Patients registered at Stowhealth
  • Patients who are away at University and were previously registered at Stowhealth
  • Patients who are Temporary Residents of 2 months stay or over. (You will require a full vaccination status – please attach to travel questionnaire)
