Working to make the world a better place can mean long stays away from home. It can even mean living away from home for a year or more.
This kind of travel can present unique health challenges, which is why an appointment with a doctor who understands their situation can be of immense value.
Whether it’s before, during or after a trip, in an unhurried appointment with one of our specialist travel health doctors, we’ll use both medical tests and conversation, to get a sense of a person’s health, and discuss what they can do to look after themselves on their trip.
HOW IT WORKS
1️⃣ The individual fills in an online form about their medical and travel history
2️⃣ They talk through the form with a doctor, who will also complete a physical examination, blood and urine tests
3️⃣ The doctor and individual can discuss their health and wellbeing in the context of work and any travel involved
4️⃣ Afterwards, the individual will be sent a summary medical report and test results
5️⃣ If requested by the employer, a certificate will be sent to confirm the individual is fit to travel, and may list some recommendations to be taken into consideration
Additional blood tests may be requested or a prescription issued (at separate cost).

“Thank you for seeing me when I came home. One of your blood tests picked up that I might have a prostate problem even though I had no symptoms. The specialist told me my test result was one of the highest he had ever seen, but now after a year he thinks the treatment has done the job. I think you helped to save my life.” – Anonymous
