It's now the time of year when our thoughts turn to summer and the holiday season. Many people each year travel abroad from the UK and unfortunately some of them become ill while away. Occasionally the illness can be something serious, but could have been prevented with the right advice from a pharmacist. Our Travel Health Service aims to give you a full briefing of the health risks while away - we'll ask you about your plans while you're away, as well as your age and medical history to give you the best advice we can. The assessment form is available to download on our leaflets page, so you can even get it filled in ready to save some time! Our team will then look into your destination to see if any vaccinations are required, or if there is a risk of malaria or other infections like Zika or Dengue. But advice isn't all we can do for you! Our prescribing pharmacist can also administer most vaccinations you may need (including hepatitis A, typhoid and Meningitis ACWY) and supply any malaria prevention you may need - all without needing to book a GP appointment. Get in touch today and keep healthy while away.
