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

TrExMed charges a separate appointment fee for an initial consultation. This is so we can spend enough time advising you properly on how to mimimise all relevant travel health risks, rather than merely focussing on the ones which might need a vaccination or drug to prevent. 

All return visits to complete a course of vaccinations are included in this initial appointment fee.

We do not believe in 'up-selling' (possibly unnecessary) vaccines in order to make a profit.  This would be unethical.  However, we do need to charge for our professional time, as well as to cover administrative costs etc.  After all, you would hardly expect a garage to charge for parts without labour, when having your car repaired... 


Pre-travel appointments

We have a range of appointment options (see below for durations and prices).

Don’t worry if you’re unsure which one to select at this stage: simply select the ‘Book your appointment’ button and you will be guided through the online self-booking process.

We ask all clients for a £25 deposit when making an initial booking, which is offset against your bill on the day. This is to cover our room rental charges in the event of a ‘no-show’.

Post-travel investigations

Dr Bond sees all the post-travel patients. Due to the enormous range of possible travel-related and tropical diseases, appointments for post-travel screening tests and consultations are by request only.


Visa / pre-deployment medicals

Dr Bond is also able to carry out medicals for visa purposes, people going to work abroad and their families.  

If requiring a basic medical examination and blood or urine tests only, he can do this at our new premises in Bruntsfield during a regular travel clinic.

If requiring chest X-ray and/or ECG in addition, Dr Bond may arrange to see you via his own practice at The Edinburgh Clinic during office hours, so these can all be done at the same time.

Please scan and email any forms via the link below in the first instance, so that we can advise on price and availability etc.
