Our Travel Clinic Options

Setting up a travel health clinic has become an increasingly common feature of modern pharmacy. If done properly, running the clinic can prove to be an effective means of bringing in more patients and therefore more money, but pharmacists often report how professionally rewarding they find it to branch out into a new field.

Pharmacists can set up a travel clinic with PharmaDoctor in one of two ways (see below) and the information in this section aims to help pharmacists decide whether implementing a travel health service is right for their pharmacy business and, if it is, which of the two options would best suit them.
