GPs do not deal with travel immunisations and antimalarial medication- you will need to see the practice nurse. Please tell the receptionist when you book the appointment that it is for travel advice/medication.
For “gap year” or “backpacking” trips you need to come at least 8 weeks before you travel; for more standard holidays 2 weeks before travel is usually sufficient. As these are usually longer appointments and can get booked up, please remember to book in plenty of time
