If you need travel vaccinations, please book an appointment with the nurse, asking for Travel Clinic. Before booking your appointment, please fill the in form below. Travel vaccinations are not funded by the NHS and so a private fees will be payable – the cost will depend on which vaccines you require.

Travelling in pregnancy

Some women prefer not to travel in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy due to increased nausea and vomiting and tiredness during these early stages. The risk of miscarriage is also higher in the first 12 weeks, irrespective of any travel, so you may wish to remain closer to home. Many women find the best time to take a holiday is at around 4 to 6 months of pregnancy.

During pregnancy there is an increased risk of DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and the risk is also increased by long haul flights.

Please remember that there is limited access to adequate health care in some parts of the world and that most malaria tablets and some vaccines are not considered safe in pregnancy. There may be additional considerations such as Zika virus, so please check up to date information from the websites above before you book your holiday.
