Comprehensive travel advice and/or vaccinations can be provided at Beccles Medical Centre by a member of our practice nursing team.
Please allow at least 6 weeks before departure to ensure there is enough time for our nurses to assess your travel needs and give any immunisations required.
If you are due to travel abroad please ask at reception for a travel questionnaire (one per traveller) which needs to be completed as fully as possible and returned to the surgery. Alternatively, you may fill out the online version below.

The nurse will assess your travel health needs before your appointment, so please complete and return your forms in good time. We use this information so that we can give you appropriate advice and offer you any necessary vaccinations to ensure that you are fully prepared for your trip.

If you are requested to provide a specimen this may be left at reception in the 'specimen drop hatch' any weekday before 3.00pm (except semen samples which must be taken direct to the James Paget Hospital on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday). Please ensure that the specimen containers are correctly labelled with your full name, date of birth and the date the sample is collected, as the laboratory will not carry out investigations on unlabelled or incorrectly labelled specimens.
Please telephone the practice during opening hours to obtain the results for your investigations.
If telephoning it is usually easier to get through to the practice in the afternoons and you should wait at least one week after your test has been carried out.
The doctor may ask a receptionist to pass on information about your results. If the doctor wants to discuss the results with you they will make contact.
