I would like to reassure your readers that, contrary to the article '˜Patient's concern of advice', the Minor Injuries and Ailment Unit (MIAU) at St Mary's NHS Treatment Centre, Portsmouth, does administer tetanus vaccinations if required as part of a patient's treatment.

The exception to this will be if the patient is unsure if they are already covered by an existing inoculation. This is done for the patient’s own safety and we would always advise them to contact their own GP to check.

At St Mary’s NHS Treatment Centre we are proud of our commitment to patient safety as well as of our work enabling people to access first rate care rapidly through our walk-in service.

The centre, including our MIAU that helps to take pressure off local A&E services, was recently inspected and praised by the Care Quality Commission, who awarded us a ‘Good’ rating across our services.
