Do you have any tales to tell from your travel clinic? I bet you have! Please share them with me – it’s for a very good cause.

If we can collect enough they will be produced as a booklet to raise funds for NECTM6 Charity Project. The NECTM6 travel conference will be held in London on 1 to 4 June 2016 and the Global Alliance for Rabies Control is the charity partner – please visit for more details.

I’m looking for contributions of memorable moments from your travels or travel clinic experience – descriptions and anecdotes of anything funny, ridiculous, extraordinary, alarming or thought-provoking will do. For example, I’ve had to inject through some racy tattoos, advise a traveller who’d stuck himself together with superglue, answer some bizarre questions and had many ‘lost in translation’ moments.

So please will you share yours? Don’t include any patient or colleague identifiable data – no names or addresses, just the story. Travel-related jokes and copyright free photos such as foreign signs which translate hilariously will also be gratefully received. But I would like your name to compile a list of contributors and to say thank you. Please send them to me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thank you so much! Adrienne Willcox.
