Post Tropical Screening
35% of asymptomatic people returning from travel had parasitic infections
Whittey 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:
