New NaTHNaC website and maintenance downtime announcement
This coming Monday, 24th August 2015, the National Travel Health Network and Centre will be launching a brand new look website ‘TravelHealthPro’. One site will serve both healthcare professionals advising travellers and travellers themselves going overseas from the UK.
TravelHealthPro will utilise the latest web technology to deliver new features and functions and is the result of extensive consultation with users.
As a result of this launch, our website may not be available for a short period on Monday, 24th August 2015. The switchover from the old website is expected to take place between 16:00 – 17:00 hours and services are expected to be available as soon as possible thereafter.
The new website can also be accessed via nathnac.org which will direct users to NaTHNaC’s key services – TravelHealthPro, the Yellow Fever Vaccination Programme (for YFVCs), details of the health professionals telephone advice line, training information and the search tool to find a Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.
We are sorry in advance for any inconvenience caused but we hope that you will enjoy using the new service.

You are advised to visit your general practice surgery or a travel medicine clinic at least 6 weeks before you travel. However, it is never too late to seek advice. If you have a medical condition, you are advised to discuss the suitability of the trip before you book.
