“Certain travellers give the impression that they keep moving because only then do they feel fully alive.”
— Ella Maillart
How We Can HelpWe provide travellers with advice on all medical aspects of travel including their fitness to fly or travel to high altitude destinations.
Information for every country in the world is available with each country record providing general health advice, information on immunization requirements, malaria prevention, other infection risks specific to the destination, and other current information. We also have in stock most vaccines available in Australia.
Dr. Paul Angel is registered yellow fever and Q-Fever vaccine provider.
The care of special groups such as pregnant women, children, immigrants and diabetics is also provided.
You can access travel health information for people on fitfortravel.nhs.uk and smarttraveller.gov.au.
Please allow 30 minutes for your consultation; bring with you: your past vaccination records, details of your trip itinerary, names of any medications you take regularly or intermittently.
The best timing for your appointment is between 6-8 weeks prior to departure. This allows sufficient time for a course of vaccines to be administered if required. If you leave your vaccinations until less than two weeks prior to travel it is possible that you may not be protected for some part of your journey.
Appointments are essential. Usually 15-minute appointments are allocated. If you require a longer appointment, please inform the receptionist when making your booking. In the exception of an emergency, if we are not informed that you require a longer appointment it may be necessary to make another appointment to deal with all your problems.
We try to run on time but this is not always possible and we apologise for any delay. We also encourage patients to ring ahead of their appointment to check the doctor’s progress, we understand your time is important. We do keep a few appointments available for urgent problems each morning and afternoon.
Please advise the receptionist if more than one person in your family needs to be seen, as more than one appointment time is usually required.
Complete medical checkups, insurance, aviation medicals, driving, pre- employment medicals and surgical procedures will always require a longer appointment. Please advise what type of medical you need performed when booking.
