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.

There are a couple of places that can help you with this, either of these places will carry out a travel assessment personal to you and your destination, just call them to book a travel consultation:

Boots, The Willows, Wren Park, Torquay – Tel 01803 615874

Exeter Travel Clinic – Tel 01392 430590

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

If there are any non NHS funded (chargeable) vaccinations recommended, Boots and Exeter travel clinic will arrange these for you.

At Pembroke Surgery we can offer the free NHS vaccinations of Typhoid, Hepatitis A, DTP (Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio) and the MMR.  If you require any of these, please contact us to make an appointment, 01803 553558.  When attending an appointment at Pembroke, please bring your travel assessment with you, as vaccinations will not be given without a copy of this.

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.
