Travel Medicine

We understand the lure of adventure travel.  The excitement, the challenge and the novelty involved in tackling an adventurous holiday makes for a wonderful experience. But with that experience may also come some health risks; we are able to assist you to avoid or minimize any associated health risks that could arise whilst travelling.

Seeming as not one destination is the same, treatment and prevention before during and after travel may vary depending  on the destination. Our doctors will tailor medical care to you and your planned destination.

Travelling to Africa, Central or South America? You may need to get the Yellow Fever Vaccination…

Doctors approved to administer the Yellow Fever Vaccine include:

Dr Rob White

Dr Jenny Connor

Dr Jan Gartlan

Dr Adrian Cakra

Dr Anne De Bruyn

Dr Rachael Boland
