Face-to-face consultations temporarily suspended:

Following the calls of the First Minister and Chief Medical Officer (24th March), TrExMed Travel Clinic has now suspended all non-essential, face-to-face consultations and vaccinations until further notice.

This is to help slow down the spread of the Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) among the general population, and so ease the peak burden upon the NHS of COVID-19 disease.

We are, however, still more than happy to help answer any queries regarding travel health risks and vaccinations by email (preferred method) or by telephone.

Take care and keep well, Nicky & Jim

Who are we?

TrExMed is a specialist travel clinic and expedition consultancy service run by two partners, Dr Jim Bond (independent Consultant in Travel Medicine) and Nicky Armstrong (specialist Travel Nurse Practitioner). Both Nicky and Jim have many years of experience of working in Travel Medicine and related fields.

We love travelling ourselves, and find seeing travellers one of the more enjoyable sides to our work. We are aware that many travellers need to seek expert advice vaccinations or malaria tablets at short notice and outside working hours and we aim to fulfil this need at the clinic.

Jim and Nicky have both completed the Diploma of Travel Medicine.  Nicky is an Associate Member and Jim a Fellow of the Faculty of Travel Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Jim has also been awarded the Certificate of Travel Health Knowledge by the International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM).

What makes TrExMed different?

We realise that we are not the only dedicated travel clinic in the Edinburgh area. What we feel make us different are our:

  • Location, Trexmed Travel Clinic Edinburgh is particularly handy for the South and SW of Edinburgh, with good bus connections and close to bicycle routes.
  • Out-of-hours appointment times, convenient for busy working people and families. 'Last-minute' travellers can also usually be accommodated.
  • The first mobile travel clinic service in Edinburgh (we can come to you): a great time-saver, and often more cost-effective for corporate clients and groups.
  • One-stop travel health shop, for mosquito nets, sun-cream, insect repellents, water purifiers and other useful travel health items
  • TrExMed Travel insurance: our recommended and specially arranged policy.
  • Specialist expedition health risk assessment service for schools, research institutions, charity treks, film crews and others working in remote parts of the world
  • Post-travel investigations and care, including screening for schistosomiasis (bilharzia) and zika infection.

Responsible / Ethical travel medicine

Travelling is an interactive experience, which should ideally be empowering and mutually beneficial to both travellers and local host communities alike.

We at TrExMed are very much committed to promoting responsible travel and ethical travel medicine. Jim writes and teaches on the Ethics of travel and expedition medicine and is a previous Chair of the Responsible Travel Group of ISTM.
