What happens when I attend the travel clinic.
You will be asked to fill in a health and travel questionnaire with this information you will then have a personalised travel brief given to you. Your name will be called to visit one of our travel nurses or doctor. At your consultation with the nurse, you will receive advice and if appropriate the required vaccines. Once your consultation with the nurse is complete the reception staff will complete your consult. At this point you may purchase any travel related items you need and settle your account. The appointment normally takes up to 40mins including paperwork, consultation and payment.

I used to live in the country I am travelling to. Will I be immune from Malaria?
No, as immunity reduces when you leave the country we encourage all travellers to come and visit the clinic so as a full risk assessment is given and appropriate vaccinations/ malaria tablets given.
Do you see children?
Can one of the doctors or nurses speak to me on the phone?
We encourage travellers to visit the clinic and speak to our Travel Nurses or Doctors where a discussion can be had to cover all areas of your travel concern.
You may send your enquiry via this website where a receptionist will contact you and arrange an appointment time.
Can I get some information on my destination and the recommended vaccinations before coming to the clinic?
Yes, visit Masta.org to get recommendations for your destination and a price guide.
My GP Practice does not offer travel advice
If your GP does not offer travel advice and has referred you to our clinic, please ring 028 9065 7138 to book an appointment to see our travel nurse. We are a private travel clinic and therefore charges will apply. A consultation fee of £20.00 is applied.
What if I need to get a vaccine/s which is available on the NHS?
The travel nurse will inform you if travel vaccines are available on the NHS. You will then be given a letter to take back to your GP and you can arrange for this vaccine to be sourced and administered through your own Practice. Some customers prefer to have ALL vaccines administered when attending our clinic and will be charged appropriately.
