My neighbour asked me the same thing about 3 month ago on her ford focus.

She called a week later as the bearing collapsed completely and her rear wheel fell off.

I'd jack it up and check for play, if there's movement, I wouldn't let my girlfriend drive the car.

wouldnt let my girlfriend do it to be fair that movement could just collapse as said, be safer to get her another method of transport, if it was my car and 200 miles though id maybe risk it if was only A and B roads through town etc wouldnt sit on motorway
not nice having a bearing collapse and stub axle snap and rear wheel overtake you trust me lol
