Ask an expert about travel medicine (UCLH web chat) 

10/07/2013 00:00 

Summer holiday booked?  Bags packed?  Don’t bring back more than you bargained for – ask our travel medicine expert Dr Ron Behrens for advice about what you need to do to stay well and enjoy that trip of a lifetime.

Whether you’re going to Turkey or Tanzania, Dr Behrens can advise you on all you need to know about pre-travel jabs, medication to prevent tropical diseases like malaria and how to best avoid the tummy troubles that can ruin your holiday.  Dr Behrens is undoubtedly an expert – he’s the only NHS consultant in travel medicine and is based at London’s Hospital for Tropical Diseases (the hospital was featured in the 2009 ITV documentary ‘Help I Caught it Abroad’).
