Travel Healthcare

It is important to prepare your trip well in advance. Here are some general guidelines for getting ready.

Consult your Pharmacist, Doctor or TravelHealth Advisor several weeks before you leave. It is important to discuss every aspect of your trip, such as where you are going, for how long and how you plan to travel. Vaccinations may be required to help prevent infections during your holiday. In addition to routine holiday vaccinations, you might need to have a flu vaccination, especially if you are going on a cruise. Your doctor will be able to order flu vaccine at any time of the year.

  • Visit your Pharmacist, doctor or practice nurse at least 6-10 weeks before you leave to check on immunisation requirements. If you are travelling for more than a month, see them earlier.
  • Discuss Malaria requirements and sort out with your travel clinic, GP, practice nurse or pharmacist your required medication.
  • Sort out your first aid kit and any medication you might need - including enough prescription medication for the trip.
  • Read up about your chosen destination to learn about the culture, laws and customs.
  • Check that your passport is valid and does not expire before you return.
  • Check on visa requirements for your chosen destination.


If you wish to book an appointment with the Pharmacist to discuss your travel healthcare please call us on 0115 966 4799 or feel free to drop us an email at All information will be kept private and all discussion will remain in the strictest confidence.
