Due to a Nurse shortage that we are unable to offer Travel Clinic facilities at our Mile End Road Surgery until 2nd April 2013
Castle Partnership has delivered a high quality travel service to patients and non - patients for over 20 years.
We are a registered Yellow Fever centre and have a team of experienced and trained nurses to deliver the service across our three sites.
Our nurses attend regular updated and refresher courses to keep them up to date with changes and use the Nathnac travel guidance system to advise patients of vaccine needs depending on holiday locations and holiday arrangements.
We recommend that you contact the Travel Clinic at least eight weeks in advance of travel to allow plenty of time for administration of any immunisations. If we are contacted less than eight weeks prior to travel we may not have the availability to accomodate you. We do not accept Credit Cards as payment for travel vaccinations.
Before your appointment please follow the link and download a copy of the travel questionnaire (top of this page). Please complete one for each person travelling and bring the completed forms with you when you attend the Travel Clinic.
If Appointment is for Yellow Fever Only
This will be a 20 minute appointment as you will need advice along with the injection and issue of International Certificate. Cover lasts for 10 years and should be given at least 10 days prior to travel.
The nurse will arrange for a prescription at a cost (payable at the appointment). You will also have to pay for the tablets at the pharmacy.
All requests for rabies require a payment in advance. All appointments can only be booked once payment is received and vaccine ordered.
We have recently introduced the new, improved Japanese encephalitis immunisation which we offer to adult travellers. This is a course of two immunisations, given four weeks apart. The course should be completed 7 days before travel.
Advise that any request for cholera requires a payment in advance. Appointments can only be booked once payment has been received and vaccine ordered.
Our Travel Clinics are open Monday to Friday during normal working hours.

When you contact the surgery our receptionist will take some details from you and arrange for you to be telephoned back to organise an appropriate appointment. As a minimum it will be 20 minutes however it could be up to 50 minutes depending on the number of people travelling, the type of holiday and the number of countries to be visited. Subsequent appointments may be needed depending on number of vaccinations to be given.
At your appointment the Practice Nurse will be able to offer you advice, administer your vaccinations and issue any certificates required. She will also arrange any further appointments should they be necessary.
You will be required to pay for any vaccinations administered at the time you attend the appointment.
