TRAVEL ADVICE/IMMUNISATION SERVICE
Unfortunately we are unable to offer Travel Advice Appointments currently. Offering Travel Advice is a specialised area of medicine and at the moment none of our clinicians have up to date expertise in this area. Monkseaton Medical Centre would not wish to give incorrect advice resulting in our patients coming to harm.
We understand that this may result in inconvenience for some patients and we are sorry about this.
Patients are therefore advised to seek travel advice privately and this is available at some local pharmacies and travel advice centres.
Should the private travel clinic recommend that you need any of the following vaccines for travel, we can provide these vaccinations to you free of charge as part of our NHS service:
Hepatitis A Vaccine
Diphtheria, Tetanu and Polio vaccine
Cholera Vaccine Oral Suspension and Granules
In order for us to arrange this, you would need to bring the written copy of the travel advice recommendations from the clinic when you attend the surgery.
