Travel health advice information about travel diseases
TravelHealth.co.uk provides information and practical advice for those who travel abroad, whether for work or on holiday. You will find tips on preparing to travel, as well as how to stay healthy abroad, with suggestions on how to prevent common travel illnesses, tropical diseases, what vaccines to consider, guidance on selecting travel insurance and common-sense advice on general travel wellbeing.
The information will educate you on what to expect when you travel abroad. However, these articles should not be used as medical guidance. If you intend to travel, or if you are researching an illness, you should always seek advice from a health professional at your local travel clinic or doctor s surgery.
Recommendations change periodically, and will differ depending on you personal medical history, the destination you are travelling to, and your travel schedule. The advice previously given to a relative or friend may be quite different from your requirements, so please visit your travel clinic several weeks before you travel, to get the most current and relevant advice.
