Travel Health

Travelling overseas?

Whether you are heading overseas for business or pleasure it is recommended that you have a Travel Health consultation in advance.

To ensure you and your family have a safe and healthy trip we can advise on the health risks for your destination and provide the appropriate vaccinations and medication. We offer a full range of travel vaccinations, and administer the yellow fever vaccine.

Travel Health consultations require a longer appointment to ensure your health and travel requirements are met, so remember to inform our reception staff that you require a Travel Health appointment.


When to see your doctor?

All travellers should visit their doctor at least 6 weeks before travel, if they feel vaccinations may be required.

Please ensure that you make an appointment with your doctor well in advance as some vaccinations are required to be given over a specific time frame and completed within a certain timeframe before departure.
