Where is the nearest car park?

LIVERPOOL - The nearest car park is the Liverpool University Visitors Car Park, which is located in Brownlow Street between the Foresight Centre and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.

The city council run pay and display off-street car parks at Craven Street behind the T.J Hughes store. There are four small car parks at this location, which offer relatively close access to the travel clinic by walking through to London Road, then up to the clinic in Pembroke Place. There are two other city council car parks near to London Road at Kempston Street and Finch Place.

Parking is also available at the Q-Park situated opposite the Royal Liverpool University Hospital in Prescot Street. www.q-park.co.uk

There are also quite a number of on-street pay and display spaces in the side streets in the area around London Road and Pembroke Place.

CHESTER - The nearest car park is situated near to The Crowne Plaza Hotel/St Martins Way. On leaving the car park turn right and walk past The Guildhall, on your right, at the end of the lane turn left into Watergate Street and continue walking towards The Cross, the clinic is situated at row level above the “Phase Eight” Women’s Clothing shop

What are the charges?

Please refer to our price list. 

How soon before travelling do I need to visit the clinic?

For overseas travel that will last more than a month it is best to visit the travel clinic at least 4-5 weeks before travelling. (This is because some vaccine courses take four weeks to complete). For shorter trips visit at least 2 - 3 weeks before travelling. However it's worth getting seen even on the day before you travel if necessary, in order to try to reduce your risk of catching infectious diseases whilst abroad.

What vaccines do I need for my trip?

Because advice varies so much we recommend that you come in to talk to one of our travel health advisors who will be able to give you individually-tailored advice and information. Recommendations on which vaccines/malaria tablets may be required and the health advice given will vary considerably depending on:

  • The countries you are visiting
  • The type of travel (e.g. tourist, back-packing, remote destinations)
  • Any medication you are taking
  • Medical history
  • Your type of accommodation
  • Whether you are undertaking any high risk activities whilst on holiday
  • Whether you will be living or working abroad.
  • The travel health risks at your chosen destination
  • The vaccines recommended for your trip
  • Whether malaria is a problem where you are going and what tablets you need to take
  • The challenges of travelling with children, whilst pregnant or with pre-existing health problems
