Travel Clinic

Improving access to healthcare, for your convenience

We provide a great range of travel clinic services, information and support that covers you before your trip, during, and after your return back home.

All you have to do is contact our helpful pharmacy team and let them know your destination of travel and its duration. Then you will be provided with information regarding the recommended vaccinations for the countries that you will be visiting and any malaria prophylaxis requirements. This is a private service and we will provide you with the cost and if you are happy to continue, you will be required to complete some questionnaire forms before proceeding.

Malaria is a disease affecting firstly the liver and it predominantly exists in tropical countries. It is spread by mosquitoes and leads to symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting and diarrhoea, and in severe cases, coma or death. The risk of contracting malaria depends on the region you are visiting, and different areas have resistance to different antimalarials. Hence, it is essential to consult a specialist before taking antimalarials. In Rose Pharmacy you will receive alongside with your anti-malarial medication a great range of information and products on offer regarding prevention of malaria, ranging for the use of mosquito repellents to the clothing you should wear.

Some of the most popular Travel Vaccinations that we offer in Rose Pharmacy include:

Worldwide malaria prevalence and resistance is a changing situation and is monitored by various agencies. Therefore, we recommend the following resources to determine your vaccination and malaria requirements in the destination countries:

Travellers' diarrhoea is a common problem that affects 20-60% of travellers who visit high risk parts of the world, such as Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. There is no vaccination that can protect you from all possible causes of travellers' diarrhoea. The best way to avoid it is to practice good food and water hygiene while abroad. However in some situations there may be good reason to consider taking a preventative antibiotic that can be used in the event this occurs during your travel overseas, which we are in a position to discuss and supply.

Just remember that knowing the risk of contracting a disease while travelling is the most important factor when it comes to keeping yourself safe and enjoying your holiday. So book an appointment now to talk to one of our team members.
