These PGDs conform to NICE standards for the provision of antibiotics by PGD. They allow for a complete travel service in allowing the provision of antibiotics to travellers leaving for remote locations with poor access to healthcare services. The PGDs allow for the provision of Ciprofloxacin at a dose of 500 mg for three days or Azithromycin at a dose of 1 g stat. The provision allows the dispensing of available patient packs.

  • The Traveller’s Diarrhoea includes the following resources

    Option of two NICE standard PGDs for the supply of Ciprofloxacin tablets 250mg and Azithromycin 250/500mg Tablets for providing coverage for travellers for the most common ailment associated with travel, for when they go to destinations without ready access to healthcare services. Due to antibiotic resistance PharmaDoctor recommends both PGDs are purchased, as the area of South East Asia has marked antibiotic resistance to ciprofloxacin in this condition. Both PGDs can be used in combination with kits such as those available through the Valneva and other suppliers.

All our PGD service packages come with free access to our 9-5 Monday to Friday clinical support and medical information line.
