Information for visitors

We hope you have a safe and healthy holiday and don't need to access health and care services during your stay in North Yorkshire. But if you do become unwell the information below will help you reach the right care, first time.

Be prepared with a first aid kit

You can be prepared for minor medical needs by keeping a first aid kit close to hand.

Depending on the time of year, your travel bag first aid essentials may include:-

  • sunscreen
  • insect repellent
  • antihistamines
  • pain relief, eg. paracetamol
  • indigestion treatment
  • anti-diarrhoea tablets
  • plasters and sterile dressings
  • antiseptic cream or sterile wipes

A local pharmacist can help you find all of these items and would be happy to talk through any questions you have.
