Pre-Departure Medical Screening
Frequent travellers to ‘at risk’ destinations are advised to avail of our pre departure screening service. This service combines aspects of the travel vaccine service with a personal medical assessment prior to travel. Unlike normal medical examinations, at each travel clinic we incorporate an assessment on how the country may impact a person’s health and their ability to fulfil their working role. It also provides a benchmark to monitor changes in the patient’s future health.
Post-Exposure Medical Screening
This procedure can be applied in two ways. Firstly, it can detect if a healthy individual has been exposed to a tropical disease. Some organisations use this service to provide a regular assessment on the health of their staff whereas others use the service only when the individual is about to return or embark on a new assignment.
Secondly, the service can be used to diagnose and treat patients who have returned home unwell. A fully equipped laboratory is available to our network of travel clinics for the diagnosis of parasitic and tropical diseases. This facility allows the TMB to quickly analyse samples and enable a speedy diagnosis and treatment.
