Travelling with medicines

August 2, 2018

When preparing to go on holiday, it is important to think about any medicines your children will need while they are away – particularly if you are travelling outside the UK.

Our information leaflet  Travelling with medicines  explains how to plan ahead, how much medicine to take with you, how to pack it, and the information that you need to carry with you.

If you are travelling across time zones, ask your pharmacist, nurse or doctor to help you work out when to give medicines.

NHS Choices (www.nhs.uk) also provides lots of general advice health and travel.
