We have upgraded our appointments, clinical notes and online services software. Please register on the new online system Patient Access. As part of this upgrade, all patients will receive an SMS text message when an appointment is pre-booked at least 24 hours prior to your appointment.
We now have a new SMS text system which allows patients to cancel their appointment by text providing they use the mobile number indicated in the reminder text. If you wish to cancel please do so as soon as you receive the text to ensure we receive the text in time for the appointment to be cancelled.
Meningitis B vaccine update
Babies born on or after 1st July 2015 are eligible for a Meningitis B vaccine at 2 months, 4 months and 12 months. There is also a catch up for babies born between 1st May and 30th June 2015 eligible for the vaccine.
Children who were born before 1st May 2015 are not eligible to be vaccinated under the NHS, but have the option to pay for this vaccine in a private practice. Unfortunately due to high demand we have been informed there is currently a shortage of the vaccine in private supply for new patients.

First time university students between the ages of 19 on 31st August 2018 up to 24 years on 31 March 2019 are advised to be vaccinated. For more information click here. Appointments for vaccination should be made with the nurse.
