Your health insurance should cover you when you are on your travels. Contact your health insurance company.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your health insurance MAY cover you for some health matters when you travel, but it wouldn't cover your for a whole range of other things. Loss, Theft, Delays, Repatriation etc.

Make sure as well that you get a good worldwide insurance, lots don't cover certain Asian countries. Also check max length of a single trip.

If you are living / working / studying here in Switzerland and you have no permenant residence in the UK then you would have to get insured here. Most UK travel insurance companies specify that your trip starts and ends in the UK.

I currently work in the travel industry and deal with insurance quite a bit. Get a good one, hopefully you won't need it, but if you do and you don't have the right one, you are screwed.
