Resources

International travel continues to be one of the world’s largest growth industries.

There are many sources of travel information available and it can be hard to find consistent, accurate advice on country specific health and safety issues.

We recommend the following websites and resources to provide useful information and complement the service we provide:

Fit for travel

The National Travel Health Network and Centre

www.nathnac.org as above but provided by the Health Protection Agency (HPA)

Foreign and Commonwealth Office

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office website which provides up-to-date safety and travel information for your destination. Also gives details of UK embassy addresses overseas.

International Society of Mountain Medicine

This is a mountain medicine information centre providing excellent tutorials for travellers on altitude related injuries and problems.

The Health Protection Agency

The Health Protection Agency website providing support and advice on global health issues, news and disease outbreaks around the world.

We also have a range of in-house resources to complement information given at your travel health consultation
