Travel health advice

General advice

Diseases such as Typhoid, Hepatitis A and Cholera, as well as traveller’s diarrhoea, can be caught from contaminated food. Often simple precautions can reduce these risks:

The practice does not issue anti-malaria medication. If you require this please visit a travel clinic


Malaria is a serious and potentially fatal disease which is spread by the bite of infected mosquitoes.  It is a widespread problem in most parts of Africa, Asia, Central and South America.  Prevention is based upon treatment with anti-malarial tablets combined with a measure to avoid mosquito bites, but may not be 100% effective.  A large proportion of malarial cases are potentially avoidable, and are a result of a failure to take anti-malarial tablets or poor compliance with the recommended course of treatment. Any illness with a fever, either during or up to one year after travel to a malarial risk area, should be suspected as possible malaria and prompt medical attention sought.  Please read the following advice if you intend visiting a country where malaria is a problem.

Mosquito bite avoidance

Anti-malarial tablets alone is not 100% effective against malaria. It is important to reduce the risk of mosquito bites • Use of insect repellants (50% Deet Diethyltoluamide).  These are best purchased in the UK prior to travel
