Travel Health Clinic

The University Occupational Health Service (OHS) provides a travel clinic service that gives advice, immunisations and malaria prophylaxis for those travelling on University business. Depending on the circumstances of travel, the service is chargeable to either the department or the individual themselves.

The reasons for travel on University business may include undertaking research abroad, overseas placements, attending conferences or fieldwork activities. The service does not include personal overseas travel.

A travel health assesssment form must be submitted to OHS 6-8 weeks prior to departure to allow any immunisation immunity to be achieved.

The travel health clinic service is for use by those travelling on University business. Activities covered include undertaking research abroad, overseas placements, attending conferences or fieldwork activities. The service does not include personal overseas travel.

The following groups may utilise the service:

  • University employees - costs of the service are covered by your department
  • Medical students – for overseas elective placements. Costs of the service are covered by the Medical School
  • Masters students – dependent on the content of your course. Costs may be covered by the department depending on local arrangements. Please check with your department prior to completing a travel health assessment form. If not covered by a department, the individual will have to pay
  • DPhil students – costs may be covered by the department depending on local arrangements. Please check with your department prior to completing a travel health assessment form. If not covered by a department, the individual will have to pay
  • Expeditions – the Expeditions Council requires all official Oxford University expeditions to complete certain medical requirements prior to departure. This includes the appointment of one expedition member as Medical Officer who then attends the University travel clinic for advice on immunisations and antimalarials. Please note, the University travel clinic is only able to give advice to the Medical Officer, and is unable to administer vaccines or antimalarials for expeditions, or see other team members. The Medical Officer then shares the travel clinic recommendation with individual members of the expedition who then attend either their own GP or another travel clinic provider for the necessary consultation, vaccinations and prescriptions for antimalarials

You will need to complete one of the following travel health assessment forms to access the service:

 

Employees, DPhil & Masters students, and Expeditions Medical students
Travel health assessment form   Medical student elective travel health assessment form  

 

Forms must be submitted to OHS 6-8 weeks prior to departure. OHS will assess your trip, based on the information provided, and offer an appointment and/or advice if required. As part of this assessment, OHS will look at the activities you will be undertaking and the potential health implications of them on your trip.
