Health advice when travelling

The University Occupational Health Service provide individually tailored advice and information on how to protect your health whilst travelling on University business or research. Please review our Travel Health Services via the link below and ensure you contact us as required.

When to contact us

Ideally at least 6 weeks prior to departure date (as you may require more than one visit to the Occupational Health Service to complete some vaccination schedules). However, if your departure date is imminent, it is extremely important that you get travel health advice now to ensure that you are equipped to protect your health whilst travelling for work.
