Over 72 million trips abroad are made from the UK every year.1 However, from a survey of over 1,000 UK travellers, only 41% of travellers sought advice from a clinic before travelling.2 Of those who seek advice, most visit their GP Practice, however in areas of the UK only 9% of GP Practices offer a full travel health service.2 This means that the health of many travellers is potentially at risk.
Valneva UK Limited has, therefore, developed the Valneva in Partnership (VIP) programme – a suite of tools, assets and resources carefully designed to provide pharmacists with the necessary support to develop comprehensive travel health services and address this unmet need.

Vitality CBD: higher quality products, higher retailer margins.
At Vitality CBD, we’re finding new solutions to everyday problems by harnessing the well-known properties of the hemp plant. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a substance extracted from hemp that research has proven supports the body’s naturally produced endocannabinoids in promoting homeostasis.
Our team have an extensive background in the pharmaceutical industry, prioritising organic ingredients in order to utilise the synergy of nature through scientific process. Every single batch we produced is independently tested and certificated online because we’re confident in our credibility.
From a retail perspective, Vitality provide low MOQs, both to get you started and to replenish stock. In turn, the POR is 45%, and since we always maintain our RRP, you always maintain your margin.
Vitality’s product range has been curated to cater to the full span of potential CBD users, covering oral drops & sprays, cosmetics and vape juices. All our CBD oils are full spectrum, meaning they retain a majority of the hemp plant’s helpful cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids.
Vitality’s Oral Drops use hemp seed oil as a carrier, renowned for being high in omega fatty acids and proteins. Meanwhile, our Oral Spray works as a light and easy alternative way to absorb CBD, with a simple sublingual spray application.
For cosmetics users, Vitality CBD’s Skin Cream and Muscle Balm provide sustained local relief. Employing a range of organic ingredients including beeswax and lavender essential oils, each one supports the endocannabinoid receptors found within the skin, delivering multi-purpose essential skin-care.
