What's included in our Travel Health service?
Berkat OSH provides medical consultancy in advance of travel and in the result of travel-related illnesses. Both of our clinics have well-trained doctors and nurses capable of catering to the needs of the travellers, both in advance of and during travel.
I. Travel Risk Assessments
Travelers are exposed to various risks when they travel from one country to another. Travel Risk Assessments focus on the traveller’s current health and proposed destinations. Travelers are given detailed questionnaires that include proposed destinations, purpose of travel, and travel history.
That information along with current WHO information is used to design Medical Travel Kits and recommendations for specific types of travel insurance.
Travellers generally are unaware of the current biological situation or risks that exist in the country they are going to visit. Our doctors can provide travellers with information they need and expert consultation on the vaccines they should take to avoid infections.
Travellers will be given specific information about vaccines and prescriptions required to maintain health and prevent illness in the area of their travel. They will also receive health and safety tips to follow while travelling.
III. Scheduled Program of Vaccinations
Our doctors will also suggest a schedule of dates for any necessary vaccinations and help travellers find a vaccination centre they might need while they are overseas.
