If you are carrying medications it is worthwhile ensuring that you have a travel letter from the centre to ensure that you are not stopped by customs. You should also carry your haemophilia card which was issued from the centre. You may choose to wear a bracelet or pendant which lists your medical details. This gives medical staff the basic information regarding your diagnosis as well as providing the telephone numbers of the centre. MedicAlert is a registered charity providing a life-saving identification system for individuals with hidden medical conditions.
Please make sure your travel insurance covers your condition.
