||It is important
that travellers seek travel health advice in the first instance and seek
this advice early. In general, we should recommend that travellers see us at
least 6-8 weeks before travel, but of course it is never too late to provide
travel health advice, even to those that come to consult us at the last
minute! An important first step of the pre-travel health consultation is the
risk assessment for every traveler. A separate Lecture discusses the nature
of the risk assessment that must be undertaken.
