Good news in the fight against meningitis

26 August 2015

Meningitis is a potentially life threatening bacterial infection causing inflammation of the lining around the brain and spinal cord – the meninges. The disease is particularly prevalent in children under five years old and can have a very rapid onset; therefore, prevention is the key to saving lives.

Recent developments concerning two new meningitis vaccination programmes, both due to commence this Autumn, mean that important steps are being taken to reduce the number of children and young people contracting the disease in the UK.

Changes to our website

27 April 2015

Our website might look the same, but we've been busy upgrading it and making it better.

There are still some bits that we are working on, so bear with us over the next few days if anything doesn't work or look like you are used to. If you've found something that doesn't seem right, let us know.

Thanks for your patience!
