EPS (Electronic Prescription Service)
EPS is a more convenient way to get your prescription. From 15th September we will be starting to send patients prescriptions electronically to the pharmacy. Please ask your local pharmacist for more information or pick up a leaflet from reception to find out how this could save you time.

Introducing Social Prescribing!
GPs inform us that lots of people visit them feeling isolated, lonely, or stressed with work, university, school, housing, or money. This is where our social prescriber comes in! Social prescribing begins with a conversation about these social problems. Staff at our practice are able to refer patients to a social prescriber who can guide patients towards particular people or activities that makes them feel better and gives them more control over their own health. To find out more, please ask us about social prescribing at reception!
Join our Patient Participation Group
The Student Health Centre (City Campus) is now recruiting new members for its patient participation group.

NTU Health Protection for Freshers
Students can be more vulnerable to meningitis because of living in close living arrangements. In many cases, young people come together from all over the world to live in one place and can sometimes be exposed to bacteria and viruses their bodies have not met before. This is why so many new students get ‘freshers' flu’.
The early symptoms of meningitis can be disguised as other things, such as flu or even signs of a hangover, making it difficult to spot the signs. For more information on meningitis and where you can get vaccinated, visit here.
The Student Health Centre offers both the MMR & Meningitis ACWY vaccinations.
You can also see an article released by Public Health England by clicking here this also contains information on the MMR vaccine.
AAA screening for males ages 65+
AAA screening is used to establish whether someone has an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) which is a balloon-like swelling in the aorta in the abdomen. The test consists of a quick 10 minute ultrasound scan. Invites are sent to men in their 65th year, anyone over 65 can request to be screen by contacting the screening programme on 0115 9249924 ext. 62394 or 62378. For more information on AAA please click here to view a recent article the screening service sent us.
Free chlamydia screening
Nottingham is now providing young people aged between 16-24 years old with free online chlamydia testing kits. All you have to do is simply order a kit for free here, complete the test, send via free post and wait for the results.
