Why this PGD

An increasing number of pharmacies are now offering a Travel Health Clinic to expand their range of clinical services offered to customers.

Over recent years, the number of GP Practices offering a comprehensive travel health service has reduced. In some area of the country, only 9% of GP Practices now offer a complete service.

Following a recent review by the DOH, GP Practices are being instructed to no longer prescribe travel vaccines free on the NHS, therefore the number of GP Practices offering a travel health service is expected to reduce even further.

Pharmacy has a huge opportunity to fulfil this unmet need by offering a clinically robust private travel health service to their customers.

PharmaDoctor’s Altitude Sickness PGD allows pharmacists to dispense acetazolamide to help to prevent and reduce symptoms of altitude sickness for customers planning a trip to a high altitude destination.

Note:The PharmaDoctor Altitude Sickness PGD is nearly always purchased by pharmacists as part of PharmaDoctor's Travel Health eTool and integrated PGD Package
