If you’re planning a trip overseas, it’s important to find out whether you need any vaccinations. At BMI Albyn Hospital we have a dedicated Private Travel Clinic for patients in Aberdeen, Angus and Moray, to prepare you for your travels.
When travelling to certain areas of the world, you’re at risk of contracting illnesses that have not been covered through the UK childhood vaccination programme.
This is why it’s important to get the necessary vaccination that will help boost your body’s immunity towards those specific diseases and infections.

Accessing private healthcare is easy, whether you choose to pay directly or use private medical insurance.
If you are paying for yourself, we can usually offer an upfront cost which you can then choose to pay in full or access one of our easy payment options.
If you have insurance, we can arrange direct settlement with your insurance provider, although you should check in advance to see if your treatment is covered. For more information, visit our private medical insurance page.
