NHS consultations whilst overseas

For reasons of clinical safety and information security we are not allowed to carry out consultations with you if you are not physically present in the UK. This includes answering written or digital requests for medical advice, and we are also not able to issue repeat prescriptions.

If you travel abroad often, or will be taking a trip outside the UK which will last for more than a couple of weeks, please plan ahead and order prescriptions at least a week before you travel.

If you become ill whilst abroad please seek local medical advice or contact the local British Embassy for assistance. If you receive treatment, please keep any written documentation and bring it home with you so that we can review it and put it in your medical record.
