Travel Vaccinations

Please Note:  We are the Bishopton Medical Practice in Bishopton, Scotland.  If you are looking Bishopston Medical Practice in Bristol, England please click here


If you are travelling abroad please make sure you contact us in plenty of time (at least 6 weeks before you travel) to arrange any vaccinations that may be necessary. To help the Travel Nurses assess your travel needs it is important that you complete a travel questionnaire so that a risk assessment can be completed. This questionnaire is the basis for the Practice Nurse to tailor travel health advice for your individual needs.

Each traveller must complete the pre-travel questionnaire. (Please be specific regarding countries / regions visiting and length of time in each place) If you submit your form less than 6 weeks before your intended date of departure we may be unable to offer you an appointment.

Foreign Travel Vaccinations

  2. Please allow 2 working days for the Practice Nurse to process your travel questionnaire and determine if you require any vaccinations. If so a prescription(s) will be isssued.
  3. After 2 working days call the surgery (after 10am) and the receptionist will inform you if you need to collect any prescriptions and arrange appointment if required.
