Emergency Walk-In Clinic

The Hospital for Tropical Diseases is unable to give telephone advice to members of the general public

This service is for travellers who have returned from the tropics within the last six months who are acutely unwell with conditions such as fever, bloody diarrhoea or rash.

These individuals can self-present to our walk-in clinic without an appointment or referral.

Unfortunately we are unable to see children aged 16yrs or less in our walk-in clinic. Children who are unwell after return from abroad can be referred by their GP to our UCLH Paediatric ID/tropical clinic and will usually be seen within 2 weeks, however children with a fever after return to the tropics should be seen urgently in their local Emergency Dept.

On arrival an assessment will be carried out by one of our clinical nurse specialists to determine whether the attendance is appropriate.

Our emergency walk-in clinic is open 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday. If you need to attend our emergency clinic out of working hours you should go to the Accident & Emergency Department at University College London Hospital, which is situated on the corner of 235 Euston Road and Gower Street.

The nearest tube stations are: Euston, Euston Square, Warren Street and Goodge Street.

For other problems please see your local doctor, who will refer you to the Hospital if appropriate.

Information about the Zika virus

I am pregnant and have recently visited an affected country - what should I do?

The Hospital for Tropical Diseases (HTD) are happy to see pregnant women with symptoms on return from abroad, and will counsel/test as appropriate. We do encourage patients to telephone the clinic first on 020 3456 7891 before making the journey to HTD, so that we can advise whether attendance is necessary, and if so how urgent.
