The nurses are able to help with all aspects of travel medicine, in a routine booked appointment. We access the latest advice and recommendations that are tailored to the areas you are visiting.

Please make an appointment with the doctor of your choice as early as possible - ideally before you become pregnant, to discuss issues around pregnancy and to start folic acid pre-conception (this minimises the chance of having a baby with spina bifida.)
