Travel Clinic

The Practice no longer provides Travel Advice or Travel Immunisations.

  • Patients can access information on what vaccinations are required, together with malarial and safe travel advice at Home – Fit for Travel.  The website allows you to select your destination and then view the requirements for the destination. Once you have this information you should contact [email protected] or call them on 0141 816 1002 and arrange to be vaccinated.
  • Four Travel Vaccines are available on the NHS (Typhoid, Hepatitis A, DPT and Cholera) at no direct cost to the patient. Any other vaccinations will incur a cost to the patient as at present.
  • There is also a GGC webpage with useful information: Overseas Travel Vaccinations.

Please remember to allow at least 6-8 weeks to arrange your vaccination appointment before departure.

To make an appointment for a travel health risk assessment in Scotland, contact the NHS health board where you live. 

Healthy Travel Leaflet

You may find the following leaflet helpful when making your travel arrangements.

Advice on Malaria will be given.

Please download and print our useful guide below about Mosquito advice.

Hepatitis immunisation

Immunisation against infectious Hepatitis (Hepatitis A) is available free of charge on the NHS in connection with travel abroad. However Hepatitis B is not routinely available free of charge and therefore you may be charged for this vaccination when requested in connection with travel abroad.

Private Travel Clinics

You can also attend a MASTA clinic or any other Private Travel Clinic. Please be aware that charges will apply.

Masta offer travel health consultations, vaccinations (including yellow fever at MASTA nurse lead clinics and selected community pharmacies), antimalarials and travel related retail items. MASTA (Medical Advisory Service for Travellers Abroad), was established over 30 years ago and we now operate one of the largest network of private travel clinics in the UK.

Excess quantities of regular repeat prescriptions

Under NHS legislation, the NHS ceases to have responsibility for people when they leave the United Kingdom. However, to ensure good patient care the following guidance is offered. People travelling to Europe should be advised to apply for a Global Health Insurance Card.

Medication required for a pre-existing condition should be provided in sufficient quantity to cover the journey and to allow the patient to obtain medical attention abroad. If the patient is returning within the timescale of their usual prescription, then this should be issued (the maximum duration of a prescription is recommended by the Care Trust to be two months, although it is recognised that prescription quantities are sometimes greater than this). Patients are entitled to carry prescribed medicines, even if originally classed as controlled drugs, for example, morphine sulphate tablets.

For longer visits abroad, the patient should be advised to register with a local doctor for continuing medication (this may need to be paid for by the patient).

General practitioners are not responsible for prescriptions of items required for conditions which may arise while travelling, for example travel sickness or diarrhoea. Patients should be advised to purchase these items from community pharmacies prior to travel.
