At Rokeby GP, we have recruited a professional team of doctors and nurses with extensive experience, qualifications, and passion in travel medicine and travel-related health. Besides being ardent travelers ourselves, we understand the necessary precautions that need to be undertaken prior to departure.
We have the full range of vaccinations onsite and available at all times – so you’ll never be without the necessary inoculations – and we are an approved Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre (as appointed by the Department of Health).
There is much more to a travel consultation than just vaccines however. In every consultation we deliver education on the health risks relevant to your destination and the precautions that are required. We give you information for easy reference during your travel. We give you the option of buying a travel pack with treatment for traveller’s diarrhoea or a comprehensive travel pack with more treatments just in case they are needed. Additionally we receive onliine health alerts for all destinations so we can have you prepared for any current health scares.
We will advise you on the risk of malaria and whether medication is required to prevent it. You will be likely to have a choice of malaria medication. We will provide you with the pros and cons of each one so you can make an educated choice.
For optimum results we recommend booking your consultation at least two months prior to departure – however, it is better to book in late than not book at all. When making your appointment please advise reception you require a travel consultation – as this will allow adequate time with our travel physicians. Please bring with you any records of your previous vaccinations.
Fees are the same as standard GP consultation rates. If vaccinations are required, there is a nominal fee for administration. Vaccines are an additional cost.
Vaccinations fall into three different categories: Routine, Recommended, and Required.
