Book an Appointment.
Step 1: If possible check your travel destination at the Fit For Travel website or with your GP to get an idea of what vaccinations you might need. We will discuss and confirm this information during your consultation.
Step 2: Contact us to book an appointment. This should be done well in advance of your holiday if possible. (But last-minute travellers can still be vaccinated!)
Step 3: We’ll email a questionnaire for you to complete.
Step 4: Come to your appointment at our clinic and bring any previous travel vaccination records you might have. If you have any special requirements or are anxious about anything please contact our reception staff to discuss any concerns.
Step 5: Payment can be made by cash, cheque or card at reception.
Step 6: You might have to return for a follow-up injection a week or two later.
If you are anxious about your travels we offer counselling at our clinic, or remotely, by phone or online. We also offer remote counselling if you need someone to talk to while you are away.
What about when I get back?
Many tropical diseases only present weeks or months after exposure. Our post travel check up offers a 30 minute medical dealing with specific travel health issues eg Bilharzia or stomach problems. Geared to those returning from short term assignments (less than 1 year) this short medical addresses specific health issues such as schistosomiasis or stomach problems. Any tests carried out will be specific to the clinical concern. Separate charge may be necessary for certain tests.
Products such as insect repellents, mosquito nets and water purifiers are an important part of your healthcare regime in many destinations overseas. We have a comprehensive range of evidence based accessories available at our clinic.
