Travel Medical Supplies
When you’re travelling, top-quality medical care isn’t always accessible. Dr Grey will advise you on the best medication to carry with you in case you get sick, so you can get back on track as quickly as possible.
We stock travellers’ medical supplies which can be tailored to your destination and medical history. You will receive relevant advice on medications to prevent and/or treat common travel-related ailments, including malaria prophylaxis.
We can supply:
- A medication authorisation letter for you to present to Customs officials if necessary.
- Easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions that tell you exactly what to take and when.
Fees & Charges
Our Travel Medicine consultations provide tailored and comprehensive advice and vaccinations specific to your travel destination.
This appointment will involve a 30 minute consultation with the Doctor. You also see a nurse for any vaccinations required.
The consultation fee is estimated at $180. A medicare rebate of $79.70 will apply (if you are not travelling for work).
Vaccinations will be charged separately.
Medicare and Private Health Rebates
Medicare will partially refund your consultation fee (as long as you are not travelling for work).
Additionally, the cost of your vaccines may be claimable through your private health insurance fund (depending on your level of cover).
You will be provided with an individual vaccination book as part of your consultation. This will list which vaccines you have had, what they are for, and how long they last.
This internationally accredited vaccination record book may be required throughout your travel, eg before you are permitted to enter certain countries, or even to return to Australia after visiting certain destinations.
As well as providing a compact record of your vaccinations, it has space for other pertinent medical details, such as your blood group, allergies and important medical history.
For patients who are not certain of what vaccinations they’ve had (or when), we can arrange a blood test to check antibody levels for some common travel diseases.
Additionally, Dr Grey is able to access the Australian Immunisation Record to see the the details of vaccinations you have previously received.
