Unfortunately we are unable to offer Travel Advice Appointments currently. Offering Travel Advice is a specialised area of medicine and at the moment none of our clinicians have up to date expertise in this area. Queens Road Surgery would not wish to give incorrect advice resulting in our patients coming to harm.
We understand that this may result in inconvenience for some patients and we are sorry about this.
Patients are therefore advised to seek travel advice privately and this is available at some local pharmacies and travel advice centres.
Should the private travel clinic recommend that you need any of the following vaccines for travel, we can provide these vaccinations to you free of charge as part of our NHS service: Hepatitis A Vaccine, Typhoid Vaccine, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio vaccine, Cholera Vaccine Oral Suspension and Granules.
In order for us to arrange this, you would need to bring the written copy of the travel advice recommendations from the clinic when you attend the surgery.
You can also check out the following websites for up to date information:
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Queens Road operates the C Card Scheme and 'You're Welcome' for Young People - please see our display beside the main staircase.

How to make an appointment
Ring 01207 585890 and ask for either a telephone appointment or a surgery appointment with the doctor, nurse practitioner or nurse. The doctor or nurse can even phone you back on your mobile if you need help the same day. Consultations are confidential. Usually we would encourage you to attend with a parent but you can attend on your own or with a friend. You can also request to see a male or female member of staff.
We offer a confidential service which means we wont tell anyone else what you say, the only time this may happen is if we think you may be at risk, even then we will always try to get your consent first.
Other places that can help include local clinics for young people, and you can often be seen without an appointment. Try these -
