Traditionally, travel medicine has been practised on a part-time basis, most usually in the primary care setting. As it develops into a speciality in its own right, the provision of pre-travel health care is more frequently being provided in dedicated centers by specialists in the discipline. Once the decision to set up a travel clinic has been made, thorough research and consideration of the practicalities of opening and running a specialist center is are essential. This will ensure that the clinic is clinically and financially successful, and, more importantly, is able to provide the consistently high standard of care expected of such a clinic.
