Ask questions at your travel health advice appointment

Have you got questions about travel health? NX Travel Health Clinics has answers! Our articles can be useful before your travel health advice appointment, as they will give you an idea of what to expect.

NX Travel Health Clinics is proud to launch a new section of our website, Travel Advice. Our articles will help you to make informed choices before and during your trip.

At your appointment with our specialist travel health nurses, you will be asked some questions about yourself and about your trip. They may also have questions about what activities you have in mind during your holiday. Our nurses need this information because certain activities or types of travel may expose you to particular health risks.

Which travellers need travel health advice?

We’ve written articles to support the advice given by our nurses to various groups of travellers, including:

The information you are given at your travel health advice appointment will vary according to the time of year you are travelling, so jot down the dates of your itinerary. This is particularly important for working out malaria prophylaxis, which has to be started before you arrive in the malarious area, and finished after you leave. Don’t waste time trying to work out malaria prophylaxis yourself: let our experts take that worry off your hands!

Many travellers who are going on a multi-stop trip find it tricky to work out what health risks they will be exposed to because while there is plenty of travel health information on the internet, it will never be tailored to your specific needs. Our state-of-the-art information systems put the latest healthcare data at our fingertips, and our advisers will take a detailed history from you so that they can give you the best possible advice.

NX Travel Health Clinics offers 20-minute appointments, and we’d love you to ask for a double back-to-back appointment if your trip has more than three destinations or if you have complex health needs.
