This website originated in 2009. It started as a conversation between a patient and a staff member of the clinic. The name was chosen and it was called cycinfo.net. The CYC bit being Courtyard Clinic, an abbreviation still used in the clinic to this day.

As expected, the site gathered momentum and soon patients and clinic staff were referring to it.

Around 2017, the site changed name and it became, as it is known now; courtyard.me.uk.

In February 2022, the site underwent a major facelift. This was because the webhost providing company changed their online website builder which gave us the opportunity to give the site a new fresh look whilst tidying and bringing the site up to date.
