Nurses at The Whickham Practice can provide advice for basic travel only as we are not a specialised service. If you would like travel advice from the surgery please complete the attached form in as much detail as possible, six to eight weeks prior to travel. We will hand this to our nurses with your notes to be assessed and we will contact you as soon as this has been completed.
Patients with complex travel needs should attend a registered travel centre for expert advice.
Complex travel includes:
• Long stay destinations of a month or more
• School field trips e.g. world challenge etc.
• Patients with uncertain travel itineraries
• Patients travelling for work purposes
We are unable to recommend specific travel clinics but large chemists usually provide this service. There is also a travel clinic in Newcastle the details of which can be found on the internet.
