Healthcare for Global Working Families
We have extensive experience of caring for those who embark on missionary and humanitarian work as a family. We cater for those who attend locally as well as families from further afield.
Before you go, while you’re there, and when you return
Founded in 1983, HealthLink360 has welcomed hundreds of missionary and global-working families through its doors. The clinic has moved over the years and now is 8 miles from Edinburgh in Carberry, close to Musselburgh. It serves local travellers through a travel clinic and global travellers from across the UK. Services for families include health screening, pre, mid and post-assignment medical and psychological care, debriefs, vaccinations and counselling. If you are a family simply looking for travel vaccinations, please visit our travel clinic page.
Ideal for families
Services are all available under one roof, and often appointments can be scheduled to take place within a single day. Families often stay in the nearby Premier Inn and come to the clinic by taxi, sometimes staying on to enjoy a day out in Edinburgh. We have a kitchen with basic food preparation facilities, and a small library. Upstairs is a large room where families on all-day visits can relax while they wait. Outside are the grounds of the Carberry Estate with a a variety of woodland trails to follow, and Carberry Hotel with a cafe and bistro.
Serving families from across the UK
We regularly receive visitors from outside of Scotland to HealthLink360. We are located 40 minutes by taxi from Edinburgh Airport, or 10 minutes by taxi from the nearest train station. For those who require full preparation or debrief we organise appointments across one or two days for families, which can include travel vaccinations, medical check-ups and mental health support, all under one roof. Affordable accommodation is available nearby.
