Noticeboard

Apr-17: 252 people failed to attend their GP/nurse appointment!  This is equal to 42 hours of wasted appointments!  

With increased demand for GP and nursing services and very little extra funding to facilitate this rise, reducing the DNA (did not attend) rate could make a significant difference to appointment availability.  PLEASE...if you cannot make your appointment, let us know ASAP so we can offer it to someone else.

Meningitis ACWY

Meningococcal Disease (Meningitis)

www.meningitisnow.org/meningitis-explained/signs-and-symptoms/meningitis-children-and-young-people/ 

Meningococcal meningitis and meningococcal septicaemia occur sporadically throughout the world.  All new university entrants aged 24 or under are being offered (subject to vaccine availability) immunisation against Meningococcal Meningitis ACW and Y as part of a new NHS vaccination programme.  

The Department of Health strongly recommends you have the MenACWY vaccine BEFORE starting university.  

Read the NHS information on MenACWY vaccination for further details www.nhs.uk/Conditions/vaccinations/Pages/men-acwy-vaccine.aspx

International students should also consult their doctor to try to be immunised at least 3 weeks before their arrival in the UK.  The University Medical Service will immunise anyone aged 24 or under who has not been immunised before arrival.
