PASSWORD PROTECTED ACCESS

Access to this area of the website is reserved for my current patients (The buttons link to password protected folders) - It is the most dynamic part of the website as new materials will be continually added and older ones updated. As the volume of patient education material available online is substantial, I have chosen not to provide a bunch of paper copies at booking for the sake of being kind to the environment.

The Table of Contents button below links to an excel file which contains updated information of all the available files. It is downloadable to facilitate searching and sorting. The password for all the links are same, changed quarterly and provided via e-mail.
All the patient information files are from reputed sources which have been appropriately acknowledged. They should be viewable on a computer or any mobile device. Downloading and printing have been disabled from this site - All files can be accessed through the source websites. If one needs to download one or more particular pamphlet and doesn't want the hassle of clicking on links, I will provide printed copies or put the file on the patient folder.

There appears to be a glitch that when a file is clicked it says 'preview not available' - just going back on the browser and re-clicking the file again sorts the problem.
