Overseas Travel Service
Due to an increase in workload we are no longer able to offer travel assessments at the practice. We also no longer offer Yellow Fever vaccination.

Travelling in the EU
For most people, the UK Global Health Insurance Card (UK GHIC) replaces the existing European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) for new applications.
If you have an existing EHIC, it will remain valid until the expiry date on the card.
You can apply for a new card up to 6 months before your current card expires. To find out more and apply for a UK GHIC please click here.
