Today, people are travelling more than ever before, and visiting the most beautiful and interesting destinations, so at Castlegate Family Practice, we want to make sure our travelling patients are given all the right information to make their own decisions when it comes to immunisations.
Our medical professionals encourage intrepid travellers to put in the preparation for their own health and wellbeing, and that includes getting a pre-travel health consultation with one of our doctors. Whether the journey is for a vacation, business, or even a permanent move, on any given day there can be regional disease outbreaks. With world travel accessibility to even the most remote of places on earth, local illnesses can take on dimensions of significant meaning, so we want to ensure all your pre-health preparations are conducted with forethought and proper planning.
Nothing beats talking to a travel medicine professional about international disease information. At Castlegate Family Practice, we acknowledge that the internet has become a source of information from varying organisations and individuals on how to maintain health and safety while abroad, but the challenge is not within the information itself. It’s in its interpretation and relevance to the individual and their trip, so what one patient might require in terms of vaccines, another may not need at all. We will listen and learn about your travel plans and itinerary, look at your health history, assess your risks, and then take action.
Together, we will help prepare you for the trip of a lifetime, and that includes protection against diseases such as Japanese Encephalitis, Measles, Malaria, Dengue fever, Typhoid fever, and even Influenza if required. And just like getting on a plane where you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride, at Castlegate Family Practice we’ll take you on the right journey to perfect travel health every time.
Castlegate Family Practice is also happy to announce that we are yellow fever accredited. Book into the travel clinic today, before your big trip!
