TTP patients often worry about travelling abroad and what would happen with their treatment if they had a relapse or felt unwell in a foreign country. The first letter below, in English, can be used to give to a hospital or doctor in this country and often abroad, however, it has also been translated into a number of languages for you to carry if you travel across the world. Print it out together with the English letter and keep it with you. Don’t forget to complete your name, consultant and hospital details in the spaces as shown in the English version.
