Annually, about 20 000 British Muslims journey to Saudi Arabia to undertake the Hajj, the greater Muslim pilgrimage.1 The National Travel Health Network and Centre advises intended pilgrims to see their GP 6 weeks prior to travel, to review their health needs and fitness to perform Hajj.2 With rising multimorbidity, polypharmacy, and risk of infectious disease, it is important for those in general practice to understand what Hajj involves, in order to provide culturally and religiously sensitive and appropriate medical advice and support.
