Travel Health Resource Centre

Travel Health Resource Centre

The Nursing in Practice Travel Health Resource Centre brings you the latest developments in travel health, including running patient clinics, vaccinations, disease risk and other common health-related travel concerns.

The field of travel health has grown over the last decade as an increasing number of Britons travel abroad. Combating deep vein thrombosis on long-haul flights and ensuring an up-to-date and correct immunisation history before travelling are just some of the factors involved in a travel health service.
