Bemused Backpacker contains affiliate links. Attempts are made to keep these links to a minimum but they are used sporadically. Where they are used I will earn a commission from any purchases made by you, at no extra cost to you. This helps keep the running costs of the logistical and business aspects of BemusedBackpacker.com down.
Prices are EXACTLY the same whether you purchase through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will NOT pay more by clicking through our affiliate links.

The information provided by BemusedBackpacker.com and the travel clinic is here for general travel health advice and information only. It is not a replacement for a personal consultation with a travel nurse specialist, your GP or a doctor specialising in travel medicine if you need physical examination or treatment. This advice is based on current health advice and guidelines and given by a qualified nurse, but you will still need to make a physical appointment with your GP or travel nurse specialist to obtain any vaccinations or medications and responsibility for the prescribing and dispensing of any vaccination or medication lies with them. Advice on which vaccinations or antimalarial prophylaxis is advisable to use is based on national guidelines and this website can accept no responsibility for negative side effects of any vaccination or prophylaxis. Dependent on the nature of your medical history and the information you supply, an online consultation may not be the best fit for you and in those circumstances I will point you to your own GP or nurse specialist who will have full access to your medical history and will be able to perform a range of observations and tests that could supplement or inform any advice given. This website cannot accept any responsibility for any use or misuse of the general advice given.
Every effort is made to keep the website up and running smoothly. However, BemusedBackpacker.com takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the website being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond our control.
