TRAVEL HEALTH

We strongly encourage travellers to discuss their travel plans with their practice nurse or attend a private travel clinic.

It is during this discussion that hazards specific to your destination can be identified and advice on avoiding them can be given. Travellers need to understand the health risks that travelling internationally may pose and be actively involved in preparing for healthy travel. Travellers with very complex itineraries will be referred to a specialist travel clinic for advice.
