Post Tropical Screening

35% of asymptomatic people returning from travel had parasitic infections

Whitty et al 2000

This is for asymptomatic travellers, who are well, but may have been exposed to a tropical condition whilst overseas e.g. possible schistosomiasis. A referral from a GP or another recognised health care professional is required for those individuals needing a post tropical screen.

We regret that we can not offer Post Tropical Screening without a referral.

Post tropical screening is conducted in the HTD outpatient clinic and referrals can be faxed to 020 3447 9354 or posted to:
