Regular travel for work, especially to difficult contexts, can put you at greater risk of ill health. Weather. Food. Altitude. Long working hours. Stress. Lack of sleep. All these things and more can combine to place health pressures on people who have an important job to do.
If these pressures are ignored, neglected or managed poorly, ill health may well follow. And it’s hard to do your job if you are not well yourself.
But as we all know, prevention is better than cure. And that’s the basis of this service, in which an experienced doctor with specific experience of travel health will conduct a thorough, unhurried review of their health and wellbeing, with plenty of opportunity for questions and conversation.
The aim: to help them not just stay well, but thrive as they work and travel.
HOW IT WORKS
1️⃣ The individual fills in an online form about their medical and travel history
2️⃣ They talk through the form with a doctor, who will also complete a physical examination, blood and urine tests
3️⃣ The doctor and individual can discuss their health and wellbeing in the context of work and any travel involved
4️⃣ Afterwards, the individual will be sent a summary medical report and test results
5️⃣ If requested by the employer, a certificate will be sent to confirm the individual is fit to travel, and may list some recommendations to be taken into consideration
For regular travellers, we recommend this service once every two years. An employer will not receive details of a person’s medical history without that person’s consent.
