Travel Health, Health Screens, Vaccines and Occupational Health at Your Excellent Health Service, Harley Street.

Dr Easmon trained at St George’s. London. He did his elective in Ghana (his country of birth) and has since worked with, among others, MERLIN, Raleigh International and Save the Children in Rwanda, and ECHO in Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan. With the Foreign Office he has visited Egypt, Israel, Tunisia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines.

His route in to travel medicine and public health was through medical evacuations, working abroad and stints at the Hospital for Tropical Disease’s travel clinic. He enjoyed several years on the board of the British Travel Health Association and was one of the first UK medical practitioners to have obtained the International Certificate in Travel Health (CTH) from the International Society of Travel Health. In 2008 Charlie became a member of the new Faculty of Travel Medicine – MFTM RCPS (Glasg).

Charlie’s interest in mental health in the workplace came late through his occupational health work in which he saw the consequences of poor work environments, late referral, lack of mental health support resources or poor management.
