Travel Clinic Services - Private Organisations 

The Travel Clinic, situated in the Hospital for Tropical Diseases (HTD) at UCLH, opened its doors in 1989. Since that time, it has developed a reputation for delivering high-quality pre-travel services, including vaccinations and malaria prevention advice, to travellers, especially those with complex needs, as well as a full range of post-travel services to those who return ill. The HTD Travel Clinic is also now offering comprehensive pre- and post-travel health reviews for those travelling overseas on an assignment.
