Travel Health

Wherever you’re travelling, we can advise you on staying healthy while you’re away.

At Union Quay Medical Centre we co-share clinic space with Global Travel Vaccinations, which is a member of the network of Tropical Medical Bureau clinics. 

You may not even be sure which vaccinations and other health precautions you need for your trip – that’s where we can help.  Tell us what areas of the world you’re visiting and we will give you a complete plan and answer all your questions.  Typically appointments last for around 40 minutes to ensure that you have everything you need.

Please note that whilst many vaccinations can be given in the two weeks before your trip, others may need more time, so it’s best to call us a couple of months before your trip to ensure that you get everything you need.  If your trip is happening at short notice, call anyway, as we can still offer useful advice to keep you safe.

If you have recently returned from travelling, we also offer testing services to ensure you’re returning home in full health.

We can offer advice on:
