Before you travel abroad, its important that you look into what immunisations and vaccinations you might need. You may be entitled to free healthcare in some countries when you're travelling abroad.
The treatment you’re entitled to abroad will depend on whether the country has a healthcare agreement with the UK.
Cancer treatment can affect the vaccinations you’re able to have, or when you can have them. This may affect your choice of holiday location.
If you’re taking medicines abroad, always check for rules and restrictions in your destination country.
If you’re thinking about going abroad for NHS-funded treatment, speak to your local health commissioner.
