Travel Health Clinics
**Temporary suspension of service***
Unfortunately we are currently not able to offer a travel service at North Hill Medical Group.
From the beginning of May we will no longer be offering travel advice or vaccinations which are not available on the NHS e.g. Yellow Fever.
If you are planning on travelling abroad and require travel vaccination/healthcare advice please search on the internet for local clinics available to you. Colchester General Hospital and various pharmacies offer travel vaccinations and advice. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.
Travel Health Clinics are regularly held at our North Hill Surgery. We are also a designated Yellow Fever Clinic. You may be able to have some of the NHS vaccinations at your local Surgery, but your first travel appointment will be with our trained Travel Health Nurse at North Hill Surgery.
Please plan in advance – we cannot guarantee to offer you a last minute appointment.
It is advisable that you attend the Travel Clinic at least 6 weeks in advance of travelling.
If you are travelling to a few exotic destinations you may require several courses of vaccinations which have to be given over a 4-6 week period.
Please click on the link below and complete a Travel Vaccination Form to give us as much information as possible about your travel itinerary. This will enable our Travel Nurse to plan what vaccinations you may require before travelling.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
Travel Vaccination Form
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please print the Travel Vaccination Form, fill it out and send it to us so the Travel Nurse can assess what you require and then arrange an appointment with you.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
