The Travel Doctor's Health Tips

With the Christmas holidays coming up, some of you may be travelling to visit (or escape from!) family. The Travel Doctor has all the answers to your travel questions.  



What is Travel Health?

This means making sure travellers are best prepared for preventing or managing illness and accidents while they are away from home. It may involve ensuring a traveller understands the various health risks in their destination and knows how to avoid or minimise the risks. It may also involve being protected through vaccinations, or using special medications to avoid disease. It could also involve travelling with a designated travellers medical kit containing prescription medications to treat common travellers illness early and preventing serious disease. It also means having travel insurance. Look through our website to find out more about looking after travellers health.

Why do you need travel-health advice?

If you travel, you need to look after yourself and your health! Travel to international destinations is accompanied by risk of various problems that can affect your health, even "safe" travel to Europe and Nth America is not without some potential for health issues. Travel to the less-developed tropical parts of the world often present a range of serious hazards that need to be understood and managed properly to avoid illness. This is especially true for children, older travellers, and those who have some weakness in their immune system already. Nobody is immune to all travellers’ health problems.

Why are Travel Doctor-TMVC clinics the best place to look after you?

Started over 20 years ago, the Travel Doctor-TMVC clinics are staffed by enthusiastic travellers, who happen to be trained medical staff, where the needs of travellers are very well understood. They can help with trip planning, understanding individual itineraries, provide international health links, on-line communication options for travellers, and give you great value-for-money. For the most up-to-date information, and most comprehensive range of service, come and visit our clinics. Explore this website for important information about your travels.
