As more of us spend extended amounts of time outdoors in the countryside, city parks and in our gardens, one of the things we should be more aware of is the risk of getting Lyme disease.
If you’re looking forward to going on holiday this summer, have you given any thought to how you’ll look after your oral health while you’re away? A dental problem could spoil your hard-earned break. But while such problems can happen any time, there are a few things you can do to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible when you’re away from home.
If you’re travelling abroad for your holiday this summer – particularly if you’re flying long haul – you’ve probably already thought about whether you need any travel vaccinations. But have you considered whether you need protection against measles?
If you’re going abroad for a holiday this summer you may need to take some medicines with you.

While many people are looking forward to jetting away to hot and sandy destinations this summer, there’s evidence that not everyone is getting excited about going away.
