Getting Malaria Tablets (Malarone) in London QuicklyHello,
Does anyone know the procedure for getting malarone in London for a foreigner who will simply be passing through London for a week or so? I will be going from South America to Africa via London, and would hope to pick up a month or so supply. Is a doctor's appointment and a prescription necessary? Does it typically have to ordered? If so how long is this likely to take? I would pay in cash, so no need to involve insurance companies.
Thanks a lot for any advice.

1You will certainly be able to get it through Nomad. They tend to be quite expensive though and it is best to book an appointment. Some chemists are licensed to prescribe them as well. I have used the chemist in my local Morrisons supermarket and they could prescribe it.
It may be worth emailing some of the big chemists, like Boots and Lloyds, to see what their policies are.

4Masta have a number of travel clinics around but they are expensive at £46 for 12-
If you can get it from a pharmacy like Boots or Morrisons you'll pay more like £2.50 (even a little less) per tablet. If you can do this via an online consultation as mentioned above it would be much cheaper.
