Using the Nomad clinic services gives you a one-to-one experience with a qualified, highly trained, travel health nurse.

The consultation includes:

  • A detailed medical history
  • Risk assessment based on style and length of your trip
  • Advice on preventative measures you can take

Your pharmacy based travel clinic is all very well but for specialist advice at the same or lower cost come to Nomad. This is strongly advised if you are on a more adventurous or complex itinerary, or have special medical needs. Nomad Travel Clinics are specialists in:

  • Last minute travel
  • Complex itineraries
  • Travel health and existing medical conditions
  • Open 6 days per week

allowing 6-8 weeks for your vaccination programme, you have time to fit in full courses of vaccines where required which provides you with the best possible protection against certain vaccine preventable diseases. If you don’t have time to complete courses before you go, you risk travelling with little or even no protection against sometimes high risk diseases.

Nomad had a brilliant time at Heathrow airport this week, working alongside friends from arctec at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). We were there to support LSHTM in their Bug Off 2015 campaign – which aims to educate the public on the importance of protecting themselves from insect bites when travelling abroad. The campaign also aims to dispel many myths surrounding insect repellents and other ways to protect against bites.

Travel health nurses from Nomad joined the team from LSHTM to give out free travel health advice to passengers, soon to embark on their adventures abroad. It was great to give passengers a final reminder of the importance of staying healthy whilst abroad. The day was spent chatting to excited passengers about where they were travelling to and to supply them with advice including food and water hygiene, travellers’ diarrhoea, Malaria, Dengue fever and Chikungunya to mention just a few! We handed out literature about staying healthy and answered many questions and concerns travellers had about their trip.

It was strange to be in departures lounge and not travelling anywhere, but great to be out and about chatting to the public just before they were about to board their plane. Hopefully our last minute advice will prove beneficial to these travellers and help ensure that they have a safe and healthy trip abroad!

It was fantastic to work with arctec at LSHTM on this campaign. You can read what they had to say about the day on the Bug Off website.
