Travel Clinic @ GPs on Curzon
Requirements for travel can be as diverse as the destination country and our Doctors need to prepare for any eventuality. To help us, GPs on Curzon do request that travel patients complete our patient register and some questions regarding the travel. Please email these with your itinerary to email@example.com prior to your appointment.
When, where, how, why & who?
All of these are important considerations to ensure your travel is fun and safe!!
Special Considerations - pregnancy & medical conditions
You can still enjoy travel when pregnant or with medical conditions. Special planning might be needed to keep your trip smooth.
The importance of comprehensive travel insurance cannot be understated. In the event of illness or injury, medical fees or repatriation can incur costs above and beyond $100,000!
Ensure your travel vaccines are up to date for your adventure. Ideally, book an appointment at least one month before you go!
DVT - Deep Vein Thrombosis
Long-haul travel (as well as other factors) can increase your risk of life-threatening clots forming in your legs or elsewhere. Be sure you're aware of how to keep your risk as low as possible.
Adventure & Trekking Holidays
Be sure to prepare yourself before you head off on your adventures.
Food & Drink Safety
Simple, yet important, measures can help prevent serious illness and ensure you safely enjoy your well-earned break!
Travel for the purpose of receiving medical treatment or procedures is not always straightforward. It requires special planning as well as awareness of the particular risks that arise.
Cruise ships are a great way to have a relaxing holiday. Risks do exist and are often underestimated. Plan ahead and keep your trip fun!
Mosquitoes, Malaria & More!
Travel can expose you to a number of infections. It is important to be aware of the risks, and how to reduce them, before you leave.
High Risk Activities
From running with the bulls and horse-riding, to sex and drugs, travel lowers your inhibitions. Be sure you're aware of how you can reduce your risk.
