Why do I need to complete the assessment form?
This is so the Practice Nurse can give you important information for your trip, with regard to vaccinations and travel advice. It is very important to travel safely, with as much information as possible, for your health, safety and wellbeing.
What happens once the form is completed?
The Practice Nurse will check which vaccinations you will need and the type of information you require e.g. for altitude sickness, anti-malarial medication, bite prevention and much more.
Who should complete an assessment form?
Everyone travelling abroad, from small children to the elderly, anyone who has travelled before or first time travellers. The information will be tailored to individual needs, place of travel and past and present medical history.
Will the Nurse contact me to let me know she has received the form?
Yes. You will receive a letter informing you of travel vaccination requirements.
Why do I need to complete the form 8 weeks prior to my trip?
Some vaccinations are required in doses of 3, such as rabies and Hepatits B. Yellow fever, if required, is needed 10 days prior to travel, so it is sometimes time-restricted as to which vaccinations can be given.
