If you are concerned about travelling with sarcoidosis, consult your GP or consultant before booking. You should also first check health insurance policies to ensure you can be covered.
European Health Insurance Card
Anyone travelling in countries of the European Economic Area or Switzerland should – in good time before travelling – obtain a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). This can give you access to the national health services of some other countries, often under particular conditions – so check first. Remember to order your card through the NHS website rather than unofficial websites who will unnecessarily take money.
