News Story: People in the UK make ~70 million trips abroad each year. Research has shown that only 41% of people seek travel health advice before their trip. Of those who do seek advice, 67% visit their GP Practice but in some areas of the country less than 10% of GP Practices offer a full travel health service. This means that 84% of people could be travelling unprotected.
Analysis: Pharmacists can help ensure more people are protected on their trip abroad by offering a comprehensive travel health service. PharmaDoctor can help pharmacists to easily set up a clinically robust travel health clinic with minimum fuss or investment https://pharmacy.pharmadoctor.co.uk/pharmadoctor-travel-etool.php
