A medical travel advice is an individual medical advice offered by specialised nurses from the Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Department to employees and students planning to travel abroad.

What is a medical travel advice?

A medical travel advice is an individual medical advice offered by specialised nurses from the Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Department to employees and students planning to travel abroad.

Depending on your destination, the length of your stay, the type of trip, the activities you will be involved in and your personal health, we will offer you relevant advice, vaccinations and malaria prescriptions (malaria prophylaxis).
One of our specialised nurses will provide you with personal customised advice on important measures to take for your trip.
The relevant vaccinations can be administered immediately after this interview.

We work in accordance with the guidelines of the Dutch National Coordination Centre for Traveller’s Health Advice (LCR).

Which trips?

The HSE Department focuses specifically on trips made in the context of work or study activities.

For whom?

The medical travel advice is intended for employees, students and internees affiliated with the LUMC or Leiden University.

By whom?

Two specialised nurses from the HSE Department are responsible for issuing advice and administering the standard vaccinations.
An LCR certified company doctor bears the ultimate responsibility for the advice issued.

For particular medical situations and specific vaccinations, we work together with the vaccination policlinic of the LUMC.

When?

Well before leaving the Netherlands as some vaccinations have to be repeated a few times. Make sure that you make an appointment as soon as you know the dates of your trip.

We work on appointment from Monday to Friday, from 10.00 to 16.00 hrs.
You can directly make an appointment with one of our nurses via telephone number 071 526 3643.
