Healthcare Professionals

Healthcare Professionals

For you as a healthcare professional, the associated continuing professional development and education you undertake enhances your practise and could increase the number of services you are able to offer. If you offer private services or products, the provision of a service and any resulting increase of footfall could financially benefit your business or clinic.

Customers

Customers

For customers, being informed of their individual risks and how they can minimise these will help protect them against health risks, both abroad and at home.

Public Health

Public Health

In terms of public health, prevention of transmissible diseases can decrease the spread of incoming diseases to the UK from overseas, as well as those spread within the UK.
