Travel Health


If you are possibly planning or have booked a trip abroad and are seeking travel health advice, Silverdale Practice offers a travel clinic service with one of our travel health specialist nurses.

We would first ask you complete a travel risk assessment form so we can assess your risk, the recommended vaccines, any necessary malaria tablets (if you’re travelling to a malarious region) and the advice most appropriate for your needs. Once you have completed and returned this form to the practice, we will contact you to make an appointment with one of our nurses.

We regret that no traveller will be seen without a completed risk assessment form. Under the services a GP provides for travel, there is an obligation to give vaccines to provide, free of charge protection against hepatitis A, typhoid and tetanus, polio and diphtheria and travel advice. However if there is not enough time before you travel or you require to be seen at specific times or days of the week then you may want to investigate private travel clinics in Sussex.

Silverdale practice are pleased to be able to offer a more specialist service with a greater choice of vaccines you may require, for example rabies which you would otherwise have to travel to a private travel clinic for. Yellow Fever is currently not available. These vaccines are not free on the NHS. At this present time payment can only be made by cheque or cash.

Hepatitis B£60 per Injection
Japanese B encephalitis£100 per Injection
Meningitis ACWY£85 per Injection
Rabies£80 per Injection
Tick Borne encephalitis£65 per Injection
Prescription Admin £15
