Announcing The New Travel Clinic Service.

Travel Clinic

Following on from yesterdays announcement of the Gap Year Safety Consultation service, and as part of a whole raft of new services designed to make planning and implementing your independent round the world travel dreams easier for you, I am really proud to announce the introduction of the all new Travel Clinic!

The Travel Clinic is here to provide all travellers and backpackers with impartial, professional travel health advice before they set off on their gap year or round the world adventure.

“As well as being a seasoned traveller with over ten years experience backpacking around the globe, I am also a fully qualified and registered nurse with an interest in emergency nursing and travel medicine.”

I believe in prevention being a huge part of the cure, and that being as fully informed as possible before you set off on your adventure is a vital part of keeping yourself safe and healthy on the road, and that is why I have always provided – and will continue to provide – general travel health advice and tips on my website.

But sometimes you need more. It can be confusing when trying to swim through the tidal wave of health information to know for sure which is applicable to you and the specifics of your trip.

Sometimes the general advice just isn’t enough for your individual circumstances.

Whatdoesitinclude

The Travel Clinic can provide professional advice based on national and international guidelines and applicable to your unique, individual needs. I can:

  • Evaluate your immunisation status and advise you on what vaccinations are recommended or necessary for the specific countries you will be visiting and the type of activities you will engage in.
  • Advise you on malaria and dengue fever as well as mosquito bite prevention.
  • Advise you if it is necessary to take antimalarial prophylaxis based on the specific countries you will be visiting and the type of activities you will engage in.
  • Give you all the information you need on staying fit and healthy on the road.
  • Cover health and hygiene issues.
  • Answer all your questions on general travel illnesses and what to do if you become ill abroad.
  • Answer any of your specific travel health relate concerns and questions.
  • Give you impartial, professional advice on where to go next to get your vaccinations or prophylaxis. I am not affiliated with any company so you can be sure that any recommendations are fully impartial and based on your best interests.

Why work with me?

As well as being a seasoned traveller with over ten years travelling the globe, I am also a fully qualified and registered nurse with an interest in emergency nursing and travel medicine. I have volunteered as an expedition medic on trips through jungle, desert and mountainous terrain on numerous continents and I have seen and dealt with most things that can happen to you on your adventures.

If you want specialised, professional advice with a personal service from someone who has been there, then that is what I am here for.

  1. Wow – go you!! Congrats and good luck with the new venture 🙂

  2. Cory Lee says:

    Sounds like a great service! Good luck with this new business venture! 🙂

  3. wanderlustem says:

    Handy to know that there’s advice at my fingertips should I need it on my travels 🙂 congrats!

  4. I love this side of your blog. Some times it seems as if people get so excited with the travel and all the things you will see and the partying and dont pay enough attention to the practical stuff you have highlighted above. I strongly believe in prevention over cure. I dont take vaccines for granted so I have spent the last few months sorting that out before my trip next week.. I am actually currently suffering the effects of malarial tablet side effects. I have had to change the prescription as the first lot of meds just didnt agree with me.

    • Thank you Bianca, I think it is a really useful service to travellers and backpackers too, but then I am a bit biased! ;D Sorry to hear about the side effects though, but I’m glad you managed to sort out all your vaccines. That’s why I say it is always better to start planning as early as possible. 🙂

  5. AWESOME! Such a great service. I’ll definitely point people your way!

    I think this is a great service you are offering. I consult with a dedicated travel medicine clinic here in NYC before I go anywhere that might involve health issues, and they always make sure I’m up to date on my immunisations. People really need to be prepared, you don’t want to come back with something like dengue. 🙂

    • Thank you. Physical travel clinics are fantastic and I always urge anyone who can to go to one before they travel. The problem is – especially here in the UK – they are pretty few and far between and not everyone has access to them, relying instead on GPs or general services who are a good back up but aren’t always specialists. That is why I have set this up, to give every traveller and backpacker the chance to access qualified, professional advice from wherever they are. And I agree about dngue, I got it in India and it is NOT nice! Thanks for the comment. 🙂

    It looks good, best of wishes with your new project 🙂

    This is a great idea Mike, good luck with the new venture! I’m always confused about all the different information we’re given about malarials, and which is best when we’re travelling to multiple destinations with different strains…will have to pop on over next time we need advice!

  9. Mike, do you ever sleep? Glad to see that you will be providing a much-needed health service. You rock!

  10. Sounds awesome! This will definitely benefit people!
