Travel health information for people travelling abroad from the UK

About fitfortravel

'fitfortravel' is a public access website provided by the NHS (Scotland). It gives travel health information for people travelling abroad from the UK. Remember that you should always discuss your particular needs with your own GP or Practice Nurse.

The website is compiled by the Travel and International Health Team at Health Protection Scotland (HPS).

Aim of Health Protection Scotland

"To work, in partnership with others, to protect the Scottish public from being exposed to hazards which damage their health and to limit any impact on health when such exposures cannot be avoided"


HPS was among the first to recognise the importance of travel associated ill health and has developed one of the most advanced Travel Medicine centres in Europe.

Part of that includes Travax®, an interactive database of information for healthcare professionals on the health risks associated with overseas travel.

Professionals can register online: Travax®
