Travel Consultations

Travelling can be safe and enjoyable if you take time to plan ahead. You should make an appointment and discuss your travel plans with our doctors. At your appointment, we will provide you information about appropriate vaccinations, preventive medications, and counselling to reduce your risk of illness. We will also provide general information for your travel, which includes preventive medications and resources in case of emergency. Travel consultation also assists in workplace wellness, preventive, and executive healthcare programs to reduce healthcare costs.

The doctor may need to order blood tests or review past immunisation records in order to recommend the most appropriate vaccination schedule. Please bring records of any previous immunisations with you to the appointment. The doctor will be able to print you a travel health plan and give you prescriptions for required vaccinations.

It is important to come and see us 4-6 weeks prior to departure as the immunisations may take several weeks to be effective and some require multiple doses. You may schedule an appointment with one of our staff in advance, before your travel.

We provide a comprehensive travel medical consultation to educate patients regarding the health risks and precautionary care to be taken at their travel destination. Make us a part of your pre-trip planning to ensure a safe and pleasurable travel experience.
