Why visit a specialist Travel Health Clinic?

As greater numbers of people travel to even more exotic and remote destinations – an estimated 600 million travellers cross international borders annually – the field of travel medicine has grown. Some studies suggest that only in the region of eight percent of travellers seek pre-travel risk advice. Many of these receive advice from practitioners ill-equipped to provide up to date and relevant information through lack of time or experience. In recent years the complexity of travel medicine has increased rapidly; with variations in patterns of drug resistance, changes in global infectious disease distribution, as well as a rise in the number of travellers with chronic health issues.

Visit one of our Specialist Nurses for advice on health and safety before you travel. here at The Travel Clinic Ltd, 10 Fonnereau Road, Ipswich  01473 225176. Your initial appointment will take about half an hour, to discuss possible risks and injections.
