Travel Health Education – What do we provide?

TREC provide introductory courses and updates, designed to meet the needs of health professionals involved in the administration of vaccines and in the growing field of health advice for travellers. The courses are suitable for Doctors, nurses and pharmacists who are new to this area of health care, but also for those wishing to consolidate knowledge.

General Immunisation study days

We also offer general study days designed to refresh immunisation, vaccine and anaphylaxis knowledge, and renew annual CPR skills, in line with the National Minimum Standards for Immunisation Training Guidance. These days focus on national schedule vaccines (not childhood or travel immunisations) Our next date will be in the Spring of 2018.

Training Pharmacists

We are very aware of the increasing part that our pharmacy colleagues play in the provision of travel health care and advice, and they are most welcome to join us on any of our 2 Day Courses.
