The Hospital for Tropical Diseases is a global centre of excellence offering comprehensive pre-travel advice, an emergency walk-in clinic, and a post travel infection screening to thousands of travellers each year. 

In addition to the offer of vaccinations and antimalarial medication offered by most pre-travel services, we give bespoke advice for people of all ages, including those with underlying health concerns and complex travel itineraries.  

The emergency walk-in clinic provides ‘while you wait’ assessments, diagnosis and treatment for people returning from tropical locations within the last six months who have symptoms such as fever, rash or diarrhoea. 

The post-travel infection screening service offers a range of investigations (blood, stool and urine) for people who have returned from abroad and are worried they may have been exposed to infections whilst away. This is an appointment only service and is not suitable for people with symptoms of infection.  

The service is delivered by a team of specialist doctors and nurses with expertise in travel and tropical health.
