The National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC) is pleased to announce that we have an interesting opportunity for a Specialist Fellow in Travel Medicine to join the senior clinical team. The post has been designed to be offered on a twelve month fixed term as an opportunity to support continued training and professional development in the specialty.
NaTHNaC (the National Travel Health Network and Centre) was set up in 2002 with the broad aim of Protecting the Health of British Travellers. We seek to improve the quality of travel health advice given by GP practices, travel clinics, pharmacies and other healthcare providers, and provide up-to-date and reliable information for the traveller, travel industry and national government.
While most travellers have a healthy and safe trip, some risks are relevant to travellers regardless of destination. These may include road traffic and other accidents, diseases transmitted by insects or ticks, diseases transmitted by contaminated food and water, sexually transmitted infections or health issues related to the heat or cold.
