Additional Health Risks Information for United Kingdom

For those visiting the UK from overseas and those already based here who are exploring a different part of the country, there are a few basic precautions you can take to ensure your safety during your trip. On the whole, the UK is a safe country, but in busy cities and tourist areas you should be particularly vigilant about security, carrying your valuables discretely and staying aware of your surroundings at all times. The terrorism threat level is currently elevated, as it is throughout Europe.

If you’re visiting remote or mountainous areas to walk, trek, cycle or climb, make sure you have suitable clothing, kit and safety equipment, along with a reliable means of summoning help. Be aware that the weather conditions in the UK can change rapidly, so check local forecasts before any expedition to ensure you take suitable equipment. Medical facilities and emergency services in the UK are excellent, but it’s a good idea to carry insect repellent and a first aid kit on any trip away from built up areas, so you can self-treat minor injuries or ailments, such as insect bites, sunburn, cuts and grazes.
