Whether you travel for business or leisure we at the Travel Clinic in Glasgow help you protect you and your families health whilst travelling abroad. By providing you with the most up-to-date preventative advice, travel vaccinations and anti-malarial we can help you stay well whilst abroad on your travels.
Why Choose Us?
Because our staff are extensively trained in travel medicine. Don’t be detracted by free parking and cheap prices as when choosing a clinic the expertise of the staff should be paramount. Our nurses have completed the diploma in travel medicine and our manager has gone on to undertake the membership exam set by the Faculty of Travel Medicine. Worryingly, not all private clinics employ staff that are trained in travel medicine and the advice you get may not be up to standard. You might be getting cheap vaccines and parking, but that could come at cost, which could be your health.
We never give generalised advice. Our advice is always tailored to your trip and your risks and we always give individualised recommendations. We are not just a ‘jabbing’ clinic. Whilst we give injections, it’s a small part of an appointment with us. If you are not getting other advice alongside your injections then the clinic is not carrying out a proper consultation with you.
We’ll let you know what you don’t need. Not only can we tell you what injections and anti-malarial tablet you need but as importantly, what you don’t need. Although we love giving vaccines, it is also our job to tell you when you don’t need an injection or medication. We have generous appointment times. We don’t want to rush your appointment as we want to give you the best advice possible. It can’t be done in less than 20 minutes so our appointments reflect that.
Our appointments run to time. We understand that your time is precious and that you have arranged other commitments around your appointment with us. We don’t allow the clinic to overrun and is why if clients are late for their appointments, we require them to reschedule.
And to top it all we also have lots of free parking for you!

Weekly, I see clients who in relation to travel advice have been misinformed, told they don’t need a vaccine when they do or even given a vaccine when they didn’t need it.
I regularly see clients that attended another clinic and got no advice on malaria or who simply got a vaccine and no other information that could help to protect them.
It’s a fair assumption to make that the person seeing you is trained in travel medicine but the harsh reality is any doctor, nurse or pharmacist can open a travel clinic with no training in this area.

Mosquito nets are essential if you want to minimise the bites you get whilst sleeping and if you are visiting a country with malaria then sleeping under a mosquito net that has been treated with an insecticide is one of the best things you can do to reduce the likelihood of getting malaria. We often get asked by our clients how to put the nets up but doing a demonstration in our busy Glasgow clinic is not very practical. The manufacturers of the nets we stock have produced some videos that should help so have a look and get to grips with putting your net up.
