Davidsons Chemists Travel Clinic

Over 70 million trips abroad are made from the UK every year, but around 50% of travellers seek no health advice before travelling.

At Davidsons Chemists, we know there are many things to think about when preparing for your travels, but your health should be high on your priority list! Our specially trained pharmacists provide a comprehensive travel health service to help you understand any risks and take appropriate preventative measures.

You can start your consultation by clicking on the link above. This will allow you to register and complete a free online pre-travel risk assessment. This can then be reviewed by the pharmacist when you come into the pharmacy. Alternatively, you can visit one of our participating pharmacies where a member of our team can help you.

If you require vaccinations for your trip, you may need to allow time for more than one dose, so we advise seeing us 6-8 weeks before departure. Contact as early as possible in planning your trip. Don’t worry if you’re leaving sooner – we may still be able to help!

Before completing your assessment, it will be useful to have the following information to hand:

Dates and Duration of stay
Planned/intended activities
Recent destinations and vaccinations received
Pre-existing medical conditions
Current medication

Treatment includes a full range of travel vaccines (currently excluding yellow fever) and anti-malarial medication. We can also provide treatment for Period Delay, Travellers Diarrhoea and Altitude Sickness.
