The Tropical Medical Bureau (TMB) is the leading travel medicine clinic in Ireland, specialists in providing the best information and medical care available for the international traveller. Each year TMB sees an average of 20,000 patients, ranging from the private holiday maker to employees of commercial companies, and overseas volunteers to NGO’s and Government departments, all of whom benefit from the expertise of our highly experienced clinic staff.
Founded in 1988 by Dr Graham Fry, the Tropical Medical Bureau began as a small vaccination clinic based in Dun Laoghaire. Our second clinic opened in Grafton Street in 1992 and since then TMB has undergone major growth and expansion to currently encompass 22 clinics nationwide (four base clinics and 18 associate clinics). Not only are we Ireland’s largest vaccination clinical group, we are also the 5th largest in the world.
What distinguishes TMB from the competition is our vast experience, expertise and our superb patient aftercare. All our patients have a detailed consultation with one of our doctors. This covers everything from Deep Vein Thrombosis, food and water risks, altitude and other various health risks associated with your trip and obviously deciding on which travel vaccines and malaria tablets are appropriate. Our specialised travel medicine software is constantly being updated with travel news so if anything is happening in your destination that you need to be aware of, we’ll make sure you are.
TMB has a 24/7 emergency phone line so if you are worried about anything or become sick while you are travelling, we provide a full backup service by email and phone. We also have long established relationships with hundreds of clinics around the world so we can help co-ordinate medical assistance if needed.
As well as being TMB’s lead medical consultant Dr Graham Fry also lectures in tropical medicine at Trinity College Dublin. Dr Fry is often called upon by the national media to comment on everything from vaccinations to tropical diseases.
The Tropical Medical Bureau is a member of the Irish Travel Agents Association.
