AMBLESIDE HEALTH CENTRE

TRAVEL INFORMATION

This information sheet is for people travelling abroad who want to use Ambleside Health Centre’s travel health service to check that they have the right vaccinations, have the right malaria advice and have appropriate health advice for travelling to a foreign country.

Travel advice and vaccinations are NOT part of NHS provision so this is an extra service we provide and it therefore incurs some charges to cover the costs to the surgery.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

The reception staff will give you a form to fill in with the details of your dates of travel, your destination, type of holiday and some other helpful medical details.  Some vaccination schedules can take up to six months to complete so please fill in the form and return it to us as soon as you can. When you return it we will ask you to pay a travel health fee to cover the cost of dealing with your enquiry including any time you may need to spend with the practice nurse or doctor. Your travel health insurance may require you to be protected against certain conditions – let us know if this is the case.

WHAT IS THE TRAVEL HEALTH FEE?

We will charge you £20 – this is a single charge that covers the cost of all family members travelling on the same trip.  It includes checking all health records to advise which vaccines are needed, printed recommendations on malaria prevention and time spent with the Practice Nurse and/or Doctor. It DOES NOT cover the cost of the vaccinations themselves – some of these are free but some do cost extra (See below).  You need to pay the Travel Health Fee when you return your completed travel form. 

WILL THERE BE ANY ADDITIONAL CHARGES?

Possibly- many vaccinations are provided to the surgery free of charge and we will not charge for these. They include Hepatitis A, Hepatitis A and B combined, Tetanus, Typhoid, Polio, Diptheria, MMR and pandemic flu vaccinations. Some vaccines have to be bought in specially and the cost of these will be passed on to you.  You will be charged for the vaccine if you need Meningitis C, Cholera, Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis, Tick Borne Encephalitis or single Hepatitis B vaccine.  If you need these vaccines we will tell you what the cost will be and ask that this cost is paid for IN ADVANCE please.

If you need to take tablets for malaria prevention then you will also have to pay the chemist for these when you take in your prescription.

 

WHERE DOES THE SURGERY GET ITS TRAVEL ADVICE FROM?

We use an online system called TRAVAX.  The information is continuously updated and we use the information you have given us about your holiday to work out what health advice is most appropriate for you. TRAVAX cannot guarantee to provide completely accurate information if there is a sudden unexpected epidemic or health risk in the area you are travelling to so it is worth checking yourself, before you leave, particularly if you are travelling somewhere very remote, travelling with young children or have other health problems.

WHERE ELSE CAN I GET TRAVEL ADVICE?

Staying healthy abroad involves far more than just getting some vaccinations before you go.  We strongly recommend that you read about ways to stay healthy abroad, how to prevent malaria, how to avoid diarrhoeal illnesses, what sort of health care is available in the country you are travelling to and are there any particular or unusual illnesses to be aware of.

Tour operators and guidebooks can provide some information.

Some useful websites include:

  • www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk

  • www.bbc.co.uk/health

  • www.fco.gov.uk/en/travel-and-living-abroad

  • www.nhs.uk/conditions/travelhealth

  • www.travelhealth.co.uk

ARE VACCINATIONS COMPULSORY?

No – with the exception of Yellow Fever, most countries do not have compulsory vaccination requirements.  Vaccination significantly reduces your risk of acquiring a serious illness while abroad but there are other important ways of staying safe abroad (see websites above)

Vaccinations can be divided into 3 groups:

  1. vaccinations you should have even if you are not planning to travel abroad eg tetanus,

  2. vaccinations which are STRONGLY RECOMMENDED for the area to which you are going – i.e you are strongly advised to have these. .

  3. vaccinations which are OPTIONAL and you need to consider whether you want to have these.  The Practice Nurse can help you decide.  An example would be a country with a high prevalence of rabies in wild dogs- if you are going to an all inclusive package holiday and staying in a resort you might choose not to have a rabies vaccination.  If you were travelling with small children and worried that they might be bitten on a visit to a nearby town then you might choose to have them vaccinated against rabies.

SO WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Once we have received your travel forms and £20 fee we will prepare a travel schedule for you.  This will include advice on which vaccinations you should have and which optional vaccinations you might want to consider.  It will also tell you if you need malaria prevention tablets ( these are prescribed by a doctor and you will need an appointment to get the correct prescription). If there are additional costs then these will be written onto your schedule along with details about how the vaccinations need to be given.  Once your schedule is ready we will contact you to let you know and you can collect it from the surgery, making any necessary appointments at the same time if you wish.  If you decide to have a vaccine that we do not routinely keep in stock then this will need to be ordered for you and paid for in advance.

HAVE A VERY HAPPY AND HEALTHY HOLIDAY!

Please complete this form and return it to the receptionist.
