The Health of Travellers

This document is a position paper prepared by the Executive Board of the Faculty of Travel Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow and has been distributed to all the UK and Republic of Ireland Departments of Health.  The document highlights that the practice of travel medicine is unregulated and therefore could be putting holidaymakers in danger.  Health of Travellers outlines a need to have policy changes, better education and better regulation of doctors and other health professionals giving advice on travel health.  To see the publication click on the image below or here.  To see the press statement see here.
