Hospital for Tropical Diseases


The Hospital for Tropical Diseases is an NHS hospital and can provide a walk-in service for the diagnosis of malaria for those recently returned from the tropics. Diagnosis and treatment of malaria is free for all, wherever they come from, since malaria in the UK is a notifiable disease.

In addition to malaria, the Hospital for Tropical Diseases has expertise across the range of infectious tropical diseases and has the UK’s only clinical parasitologist, clinical nephrologist, tropical ophthalmologist and specialists in a range of tropical diseases, many of which interact with malaria.

As well as out-patient and travel-health sections, there is an in-patient ward at University College Hospital’s NHS Trust for the treatment of severe malaria and other tropical diseases.
