What to Pack In Your “Go Bag” For Travel Health Care

Have you ever been in a situation where you needed to travel and health care was not readily available? You may be surprised by how many people find themselves in this position. Whether it’s due to an emergency, work-related needs, or personal reasons; we all have times when we need to pack up and go somewhere without knowing if there will be medical assistance within reach.

A “go bag” is an essential tool for anyone who travels. Whether you are simply going on a day trip or traveling abroad, it is important to be prepared in case of an emergency. Your go bag should include first aid supplies related to your specific needs and any special medications you might need while away from home. Your go bag can also double as a travel kit filled with items that will help ease the stress of being away from home, even just for one night.

 

 

Here are some items that will help you in a pinch when you’re away from home and in need of medical attention:

1) A list of important numbers;

2) Phone charger;

3) Bandages and antiseptic wipes;

4) Water purification tablets or drops;

5) Pain reliever such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen; and finally,

6) Hand sanitizer.

Don’t forget an extra pair of everything!  You never know when something might happen to what’s in your bag.”

About Our Services

A bit about us

Just like you and so many others in general practice we found ourselves struggling to provide good care patients who travel. It never seemed to have enough time to provide quality care and stay on schedule. If you’ve ever felt like you’ve tried it all and nothing works, you are not alone.

“I will let my mum know about this, she could really make use of the medical service here! We’re loving it. We were treated like royalty.”
