This page is intended to provide guidance for planning your foreign travel from a health perspective. It is more relevant to students taking extended travel breaks, and going to remote areas, than those taking package holidays. The information contained on the separate pages and the links to other web sites should be regarded as a guideline rather than a definitive statement, as the area of travel medicine is constantly changing

With careful planning before you travel, vigilance during and afterwards, you should be able to deal with most medical needs with minimal disruption. Above all else your travel experience should be a fulfilling and enjoyable experience so that you return to Leeds with positive memories and nothing you wish you’d left behind!

Please be aware that practice cannot provide medical advice/issue prescriptions during your time outside of the United Kingdom.

It is important to ensure that you have the required travel insurance in place and if you are unwell/run out of medication while you are abroad,  you should seek advice from a local medical service.
