Setting up a travel medical service involves time, money, patience, and continual updating of information. Ultimately such a service cannot be viable unless there is a sufficient throughput of patients to warrant its existence. It is likely that in a multipractice clinic one practitioner will be very interested in travel medicine. Other members of the group should refer all travellers to him or her. In many countries, particularly in the UK, the practice nurse is the one who does most pre-travel consultations. However, this should be a shared responsibility between nurse and doctor so that maximum benefit is provided for both the patient and the clinic.
