Thrive Worldwide offers a range of medical services.
Pre-deployment medicals are offered to assess whether an individual is medically fit for the specific role they are to undertake in a defined part of the world. Sending organisations are provided with a Health Clearance Certificate and a medical report is sent to the individual.
Mid-term review medicals are offered for those we are part way through a period of serving overseas; we provide a summary medical report for the organisation and the individual.
End of assignment medicals are offered at the end of a term of service, with similar reporting arrangements. .
Specialist medical consultation - either face to face or remote. Many of our clients have staff working in locations that have little or poor health facilities available. We offer a remote health support package for your staff in this situation, which includes a remote or face to face consultation in medical emergencies, management of chronic health conditions and advice and support during illness. This service can be provided via technology, or via email.
These services can currently be provided face to face in London, and we are exploring other locations in the UK. We are looking to launch our Nairobi clinic later this year. We can also offer tele-medicine consultations when appropriate, 6am to 5pm GMT Monday to Friday.
We offer short term screening for volunteers, GAP and expedition organisations. This is a self declaration form which is then screened by a member of our nursing team. As necessary we will triage to our medical doctors and/or psychologists for assessment. The organisation will receive confirmation that the individual is fit to travel or not.

Pre-assignment screening: to ensure that staff are psychologically fit for their role and to identify any mitigations they or their organisation may need to consider.
