Travel clinics in London area

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a good travel clinic, to get some prescription drugs for my medical kit?
I just phoned up MASTA, and the only thing they give out is Immodium & 4 tablets of ciproflaxicine, for a daylight-robbery-price of £14.

My GP won't prescribe anything (since I'm not ill at the moment). I am private insured, but BUPA member services wasn't too helpful either.

(Sorry if this has been asked before – but the search didn't reveal anything.)

Bjorn

Hi there - Nomad Adventure Travel clinics are good - we talked to them at the Adventure Travel Show a couple of months back.

Their site is at Nomad Travel Clinics > Nomad Adventure Travel Store

This pharmacist is a chap called Jason (see the full video) and he's very helpful.

1st contact clinic

I've used the 1st contact clinic on New Oxford Street - very centrally located, reasonably priced and relatively easy to get appointments.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
