Travel Health Update for Waltham Forest CCG on 21st September 2017

HELLO – this page is just for you!  The content below will be available to you until the end December 2017, 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 December 2017 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.
