Travel Health Update Resources

HELLO – this page is just for you!  The content below will be available to you until the end June 2018, but please note, it was up to date at the time of the travel health update you attended, but things may have changed since that time so refer to other resources as well, for example NaTHNaC and TRAVAXAfter June 2018 this page will be taken ‘down’ however, all other pages on the website are always available.  

Over the years, I’ve enjoyed designing ‘tools’ and resources for health care professionals to use in their daily practice – created to make the process easier.   When using tools such as vaccine and malaria charts, advice leaflets etc. make sure though that you are always using the latest version. I would ask you to read the copyright and disclaimer statements please.
