Birmingham Hip Replacement - Travel Health Recommendations


We advise international patients to take T. Mefloquine (T.Lariam) 250mg once a week starting a week before the expected date of arrival.

  It is also a good idea to take the typhoid vaccinefrom your GP.

It is also recommended that once you have arrived here to consume only bottled mineral water, which is freely available. Unlike some western countries, the tap water here is not meant for drinking purposes.


Please note that you will be in a very protectedenvironment and will really not be at a high risk for any of the aboveillnesses. These recommendations are advised only as a precaution.
