There were 70.8 million visits overseas by UK residents in 2016. Many of these travellers will have co-morbidities that may change the necessary travel health advice typically provided to travellers going to some destinations or sometimes require a change to the chosen destination. During this presentation, reliable travel health internet resources and the service provided by National Travel Health Network and Centre health professional telephone advice line service will be highlighted. Using queries to the advice line to illustrate the typical challenges faced, the current literature will be considered which informs pre-travel health decisions made for and with travelers with rheumatic diseases.
