Planning an overseas trip? Schedule a pre-travel consultation well in advance. The doctors at Northbridge Medical Practice can provide country-specific travel information, immunisation advice, and necessary medical certifications for prescription medications. Some vaccinations require a series of injections, so early planning is essential.
Equipped with details about your travel plans, including countries to be visited, length of stay, season, accommodation type, and travel style, your doctor can provide you with a detailed destination report. This personalised advice ensures you are well-prepared for the health considerations specific to your journey.

Travel Health Products
It is a good idea to take along a medical kit with you when you travel. Many medical supplies obtainable overseas do not have as high quality control as in Australia. The items listed below are not usually included in commercial first aid kits. Prescription items are only available by doctor’s prescription.
E2 Medical First Aid Kit
This kit is specific to any traveller rather than just a collection of bulky dressings. Affordable, lightweight, water resistant and ideal as a present yet useful for just about any traveller. Includes emergency supplies of Panadol, Betadine liquid, bandaids, sterile dressings, steristrips, conforming bandage, micropore, forehead thermometer, alcohol wipes, forceps and stainless steel blade scissors.
These medications can only be supplied directly by a doctor.
