From the 1st July 2018 Orchard House Surgery will no longer be running a full Travel Clinic Service
Patients requiring travel advice should either attend a travel clinic or refer to one of the following websites:
There are travel clinics based in Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds. Some pharmacies and supermarkets also provide this service.
We will continue to offer vaccinations that are free on the NHS; these are Tetanus, Diphtheria, Polio, Hepatitis A and Typhoid but only if recommended.
It is the patient’s responsibility to find out what is required for their travel destination and it is strongly recommended that vaccinations are given at least four weeks prior to travel. We will give these vaccinations at routine nurse appointments and they will not be part of a fully comprehensive travel consultation. We will no longer be issuing Malaria prescriptions.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
