What is a Prescription Travel Pack?
Our travel packs do not contain medicines that will treat the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Antibiotics will not work because it is a virus. Please see the latest travel advice if you are going to a region with known coronavirus or have recently returned from one. Please see the latest government advice if you are concerned about coronavirus. For up to date advice about what to do if you are experiencing symptoms, please visit the dedicated NHS pages.
The Anytime Doctor Travel Pack® is a doctor designed medical bag to treat illnesses abroad. It is intended for travellers who wish to have a standby medical bag containing prescription only medication, sterile dressings, sterile gauzes and sterile needles. Our packs go above and beyond first aid kits available over the counter.
We offer multiple travel packs, each intended to provide peace of mind when travelling. Our basic travel pack contains everything you might need for travel to countries where medical care does not meet UK standards. If you are off on a longer trip or on a GAP year, then our pack specially created for long term or more adventurous remote travel may suit you better. We also have packs designed to be taken on sailing holidays or for executive travel. Whatever your needs, we are pretty sure we have a pack to suit you as our packs are designed to be tailored to your health needs.
You will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire, where you tell us about your current health and any medicines you may already be taking. Don't worry if any of your medicines are known to interact with any contents of our packs - our doctors will only recommend suitable packs for you.
When you are abroad, top quality medical care is not always easily accessible. With an Anytime Doctor Travel Pack® you can be sure to have a standby pack of medical supplies to treat simple medical problems immediately. You will not need to worry about finding a doctor, pharmacist or worry about the quality of locally sourced medication and medical supplies.
All services provided by Anytime Doctor are safe, fast and confidential. You can obtain treatment within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of waiting for an appointment.Read more

How the service works
|Just 4 simple steps|
Complete a free online medical consultation. Your answers provide our doctors with the information they need to safely recommend the right treatment for you.
A doctor will review your consultation and, if it is safe to do so, approve you for treatment. Our doctors will suggest suitable treatment options, including dosage and treatment duration. Select your medicine and complete your order using our secure payment system.
All prescriptions are sent electronically to our UK based partner pharmacy, ready for dispatch. Our partner pharmacy is regulated by the General Pharmaceutical Council and only dispenses genuine branded medicines licensed for use in the UK.
Medicines require a signature upon delivery. Most orders are dispensed and dispatched for delivery the next working day. All orders are sent using discrete packaging with no mention of Anytime Doctor or the parcel content. Upgrade to same day delivery for orders within the M25.
All of our prices are fully inclusive. When buying your treatment online our price includes the cost of the consultation, the issuing of a private prescription, dispensing of the medicine itself, free delivery and doctor after-care. There are no hidden extras.
We aim to offer you similar pattern of healthcare as if you were to visit your normal GP for a face to face consultation. We believe it is important that you complete a medical consultation to ensure that the treatment option you are requesting is appropriate for your needs. Our GMC registered doctors are also able to suggest treatment options for you if you prefer. Once a doctor has approved you for treatment all prices are clearly displayed. Your medical consultation and registration is free and you are under no obligation to purchase any treatment after your consultation.
In order to manage some conditions online, we are required to inform your GP about the medicine you have been prescribed. This will be clearly highlighted during your consultation. We will not contact or share this information with your GP without your consent. You are required to provide consent each time you order, so you remain in full control of when we contact your GP on your behalf.
Your Anytime Doctor medical record is confidential and securely stored on our UK data servers. We will never share your details unless you expressly ask us to do so.
Who can use an Anytime Doctor Travel Pack®?
Any global traveller is advised to carry some sort of medical bag when travelling abroad. You are especially advised to carry medicines and supplies if you are travelling to remote locations. This includes locations where medical care may not be of the same standard you are used to, or where you may not be able to get medical help quickly. You must be at least 18 years old.
What are the most common symptoms the Travel Pack can treat?
Is it safe to provide prescription medicines without examining me?
The questionnaire is designed to ensure that the prescribed medication is safe for you. But you must answer the consultation questions honestly and accurately. The pack is designed to be used if you get ill whilst abroad, and where immediate medical help is not available. The questionnaire is therefore verifying in advance, which medication you could take should this situation arise. However, we do stress that should your symptoms persist, you should seek medical attention.
Why is this pack better than standard first aid kits?
Traditionally only over the counter remedies are available in a standard first aid kit - some work very effectively and are therefore included in the pack. However, prescription only medicines are more powerful than over the counter items and when infection is present, rapid treatment is often required. This will help you relieve your symptoms more quickly, reducing the potential of ruining your trip or symptoms becoming worse.
How long can I keep a Travel Pack?
Different medications have different expiry dates. Medicines and products inside your Travel Pack have use by dates ranging from 3 months to 12 months. The reason for the shorter expiry on some medications is due to the possibility that your medical details change during this time and that the prescribed medicine would no longer be appropriate for you. This is in line with prescribing and dispensing guidelines in place to protect the safety of all our patients. Please read the labels and do not use out of date medications.
How can I get refills for my Travel Pack?
If you already have a Travel Pack, ordering refills and repeats is fast and easy. Simply message a patient coordinator from within your medical record. Individual refill items are available from £15 including postage.
What are the needles and syringes for?
The sterile needles and syringes available in some packs are to be handed over to medical staff in developing countries. They provide peace of mind where sterile equipment cannot always be guaranteed.
Can I get this medication from my own GP?
Some GPs may be willing to do this on a private script, but NHS prescriptions can’t be used for foreign travel.
Can’t I just buy medication abroad?
Many of these drugs will be available over the counter in some of the countries visited but they may not contain active ingredients, as counterfeit medicine is very common abroad.
Why buy an Anytime Doctor Travel Pack®?
Every year over 30 million trips from the UK are undertaken all over the World. We have surveyed our patients and travellers and we know that over 80% of travellers get sick when abroad. The majority of travellers get travellers' diarrhoea and approximately 30% of travellers catch a respiratory tract infection which can be easily managed with antibiotics.
Why was the Anytime Doctor Travel Pack® created?
Through Anytime Doctor's online travel clinic our doctors were managing a large number of travellers who required extra prescription only medication (such as Amoxicillin Tablets and Gentamicin ear/eye drops) on top of our travellers' diarrhoea service. However, by purchasing travel medications separately for a trip, costs rapidly added up. Our Travel Pack contents are sourced using our bulk buying powers and hence we save you money. To purchase all the items within a Travel Pack separately could cost you over £250. Our doctors can manage you online, and the medicine bag is sent to your registered address. A Travel Pack can safeguard your health. If you are abroad and get sick you can immediately treat minor medical problems.
