Rabies vaccination saves lives

Domestic or feral (wild) dogs are the most common source of rabies in humans in Asia, Africa and Latin America. In North America and Europe the disease is mainly confined to wild animals (particularly bats, raccoons, foxes, coyote, and skunks) You can catch rabies when the saliva of an infected animal is introduced into your body.

This is usually through a bite, but there have been occasions when infected saliva has entered the body via a mucous membrane (eyes, nose or mouth), or via a wound or scratch as the result of being licked.risks

Why the pre-exposure rabies vaccine is so important now

Rabies is the deadliest disease known to man, with a 99.9% fatality rate Less than a handful of people have ever survived rabies as far as we know Pre-exposure vaccination is a highly effective measure in lowering the risk of this disease following a bite or scratch from a suspected rabid animal Pre-exposure vaccination does NOT just “buy you time”.

You will still need to go to hospital after an exposure but the management of the exposure will be different to someone who is unvaccinated No vaccinated person has ever been known to develop the disease as far as we know Unvaccinated people may require the human rabies immunoglobulin antidote, called HRIG, however this is in chronic short supply worldwide

Each year, around 15-20 million people receive treatment following a suspected rabid exposure. Around 60,000 -100,000 people die of the disease The primary course consists of three vaccines given over 3-4 weeks and will never need to be repeated

What people are

…a 6-9 month wait for an MRI scan (of my back) on the NHS, versus 2 DAYS !! privately, as arranged by Regent Street Clinic. The discounted price because I didn’t have health insurance meant I could afford the scan and still do the Xmas shopping!! – great way to bypass long waits …

MRI madness….

I was lucky to find this diamond of a clinic in Nottingham when I was visiting some friends recently (I live in Berlin, Germany). Its strength is definitely the outstanding service, they made me feel like mine was the most important problem in the world and went out of their way to make me feel looked after and cared for at a frightening time. I’m going to send an invitation to come to Berlin to repay my thanks. Peace and love to all.

When we were going through a difficult time in July this clinic offered us support and access to the doctor (who we got to know very well) virtually when we needed it. The staff was friendly and understanding (complete opposite to most receptionists) and although we have now left Nottingham we are still grateful for the help we were given at that time.

This is an excellent private clinic and was very reassuring for me when I needed a quick answer (it also has the dishiest doctor in Nottingham!). Highly recommended, not expensive and easy to find, with lots of time to explore all the issues. This is just what we’ve been after in Nottingham.

This clinic is the best kept secret in Nottingham. Even though it is a private clinic, the doctor told me I didn’t need any further tests etc and instead was very reassuring that my symptoms would settle on their own (which they did!).He spent 40 minutes with me in a relaxing environment that felt non-clinical and spoke in a down to earth manner. Great value at £95 and highly recommended. (The bonus was that the doctor was a bit of alright!)

Did you realise how difficult it is for visitors to the UK to receive non-urgent medical treatment? Really I was amazed to learn how difficult it is – thank God for this clinic or otherwise, my ingrowing toenail would have been left to rot! The cost of the consultation (£95) was reimbursed by my US insurance company and the medication cost a lot less than in the US. We tried the NHS clinic first but were told we would have to pay anyway and we couldn’t be seen for 5 days! This clinic was just what the doctor ordered.
