Travel Health Information

Going travelling?

Whether travelling for business, adventure or relaxation, a good trip always involves careful planning.

It is important to protect your health while abroad, especially if spending time in areas that pose risk of certain diseases.  We would recommend that you start planning your travel health at least 3 months in advance.  It is possible that you may need travel vaccinations or malaria tablets.

At Pembroke Surgery our nurses offer telephone travel assessments, please call us on 01803 553558 to arrange an appointment. 

Some travel vaccinations are free on the NHS while others are chargeable.  You will be advised as part of your assessment which vaccines you need.

We can offer the free NHS vaccinations of Typhoid, Hepatitis A, DTP (Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio) and the MMR.  

If there are any non NHS funded (chargeable) vaccinations recommended, these can be arranged at Exeter travel clinic (01392 430590) or Boots, Wren Park, Torquay (01803 615874)

We do recommend that you visit the fit for travel website

If you need to take medication whilst you are away, make sure you have ordered this from us in good time before you go. Please note that we can only give a maximum three month supply.

Health Insurance

This is often the very last items on a traveller’s checklist, yet it is perhaps the most important of all. Cover should be arranged at the time you book your holiday.

European Health Insurance Card

The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) allows you to access state-provided healthcare in all European Economic Area (EEA) countries and Switzerland at a reduced cost or sometimes free of charge. Applying for the card is free. However, other, unofficial, websites may charge you if you apply through them.
