Blackfriars Medical Practice has a private travel clinic which runs on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. If you require an appointment please enquire at reception where one of the reception staff will book you in for a telephone consultation with a Practice Nurse . 

You will need to fill in a travel form detailing your holiday plans and this must be completed before an appointment can be given. 

Download and complete a pre-travel form

You will also be asked to pay a £40 fee. You must request an appointment at least 8 weeks before travel to ensure an appointment before departure.

Once the Nurse has researched your destination and decided what vaccines and advice you need, she will phone you at a prearranged time (this is your telephone consultation). 

You will then be asked to attend an appointment at the surgery (if need be) to receive your vaccinations and any advise.

Charges

It should be noted that certain vaccines are available free but some travel vaccines require a private prescription (£15 payable to the Practice ) and you may also be charged at the chemist for certain vaccines and tablets (i.e. malaria tablets). 

Clear guidance on charges is shown below. 

If you do not wish to use our service, we have noted some other options which may be of assistance to you below. You will have to phone them direct for details of charges.

Please note that the Practice will not give any travel advice without an appointment at the Travel Clinic.

Access to Healthcare Whilst Abroad

Ensure you apply for and carry a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) which entitles you to access immediately necessary state provided Healthcare in the EEA (European Economic Area) countries and Switzerland. This card replaces the E111 form. The treatment you receive whilst carrying this card will be at a reduced cost or sometimes even free. For more information or to apply online visit www.dh.gov.uk/travellers

Travelling to a Non-EEA country? 
You may also receive reduced rate or free treatment if the country you are travelling to has a reciprocal agreement with the UK. Visit the Non EEA Countries guidance page on the NHS site.

The EHIC does not cover all Health Care costs so remember you still need travel Insurance.
