Allow plenty of time for a travel consultation, book an appointment with the Practice Nurse at least 6 weeks before you travel.
Take out adequate insurance for your destination and activities.
The free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is being phased out following the Brexit deal in favour of the also free Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). You can still use an EHIC for now, but if you’ve not got one, you’ll normally need to apply for a GHIC. Both cards get free or discounted medical care in all EU countries and Switzerland.
