The Hospital for Tropical Diseases is unable to give telephone advice to members of the general public

This service is for travellers who have returned from the tropics within the last six months who are acutely unwell with conditions such as fever, bloody diarrhoea or rash.

These individuals can self-present to our walk-in clinic without an appointment or referral.

The walk-in clinic is an adult clinic, and we cannot see children less than 16 years old.

If your child is unwell with a fever and you have returned from the tropics, please take them to your nearest emergency department today. Otherwise please ask your GP to refer them to our UCLH Paediatric Infectious Diseases/Tropical team (if urgent, fax 020 3447 9381 -if classified as urgent, they will be seen within a few days).

On arrival an assessment will be carried out by one of our clinical nurse specialists to determine whether the attendance is appropriate.

Our emergency walk-in clinic is open 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday.

OR out of hours (after 4 pm) or at weekends and/or bank holidays to:
