Beaminster Pharmacy Offers Malaria Advice
8:29am 10th January 2014
West Dorset travellers wanting full advice on Malaria can now get it from Beaminster Pharmacy.
The independent business is offering a consultation with the pharmacist, followed up by a screening questionnaire and a course of medication.
Mike Hewitson of Beaminster Pharmacy said: "This private service saves the traveller time and avoids the need to see a doctor. Malaria protection is essential but not covered by the NHS. By offering this service we are giving the traveller a full screening, the correct form of treatment and of course peace of mind. All people have to do is arrange a time to come in and we will do the rest."
