Gap Year


I'm going on a gap year next year, teaching in Beijing, and was wondering if anyone knows anything about the medical facilities out there? and about getting meds? (I take seretide, pred, salbutamol, telfast, and carry epi-pens) Would I need to take a years supply (is that possible?!) or are they available over there? any help/ideas gratefully received

HI Meegan

would suggest you go see your doc/con regarding medications you will require on your gap year. There was a documentary on television a couple of weeks ago regarding the abundance of counterfiet drugs in high economic growth countries such as China so care should be taken if sourcing drugs whilst abroad.

this link might be of use

hope you have a fab gap year
