We have a travel clinic for Calsayseat registered patients only, where you can arrange travel advice, vaccinations and prescriptions. This is usually run by our Nurse Practitioner, Dorothy Allan. It is very important to make your appointment as far in advance as possible, to give good time for vaccinations to work properly. To book in please phone or call in at the reception desk, and list who is travelling, where you are going to, and what time of year you plan to be there. Please do not book a routine GP appointment to arrange travel medicine, as it is a complex area that requires a lot more enquiry and information than can managed in a standard GP appointment, usually around 30 minutes. If you require short notice travel medicine, our reception staff can help direct you to a number of local private providers.
The travel form can be downloaded below, filled in for each person travelling, and left with reception when booking your appointment for the travel clinic. You may need to wait for a week or so, from handing the form in, to getting your appointment for the travel clinic, so please leave plenty of time.
