We will check with your medical records and confirm your vaccination requirements. Please note that some travel vaccines require a course of treatment, so leave plenty of time before travelling when arranging your appointment.

Please contact the surgery for further information on what you will be required to pay for.

We would still appreciate a bin request prior to your arrival, so that we can maintain our stock levels.

To assist in accessing our services, we have interpretation booklets to aid with basic medical consultations. We can do this for a wide variety of languages, but would appreciate if you could notify us in advance of your appointment. We can also provide a translation/interpretation service at the point of consultation with a third party on the phone.
We have stocks of these emergency bottles to hand out. The bottles are stored in your fridge and are used by any clinicians or medics to obtain information on your illnesses, allergies, your conditions and also family contact details. If you would like a bottle to record your details in, please ask at reception. Alternatively, our clinicians usually have the bottles available in their consulting rooms.
If you are planning a trip abroad which may require you to have vaccinations or take malaria tablets, please contact the surgery at least 6 weeks prior to your trip, more if possible and please note that two separate appointments are required.
It may help with travel plans, especially last minute ones, to see what vaccines are required for each country. You can check these out on the NHS website Fit for Travel at www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk
This simple website gives up to date information on vaccines, malaria prophylaxis and general travel advice. This website is the sister website to the one the nurses use within the surgery so the information here is the same as we will give you during a travel consultation.
Unfortunately if you decide to make last minute travel plans that require vaccinations we cannot always guarantee availability of appointments to suit your needs. Due to the time it takes for us to organise vaccines to be ordered at pharmacies and due to our having to prioritise those with clinical needs, we cannot always accommodate last minute requests.
It is recommended in these situations to contact Abermed, a private clinic in Inverness, where they keep a stock of all vaccines and these can usually be given at the time of consultation. Their contact details are as follows:
Abermed, 2 Seafield Road, Inverness. Tel : 01463 710441.
