Extended Access to GP services-Kirklees Survey 

NHS Greater Huddersfield and NHS North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) want to improve the healthcare available to people living in the Kirklees area. They have been given extra funding to improve access to GP services by ensuring that more appointments are available during the early morning, evening and at weekends. This may not be in your local surgery, but would be offered at another location. To help them develop their plans for increasing the number of appointments, they'd like to hear your views. Please take a few minutes to complete a short questionnaire by clicking here

Your feedback will be used by each CCG to help develop services within their own area to meet the needs of the local population. If you would like more information visit www.greaterhuddersfieldccg.nhs.uk or www.northkirkleesccg.nhs.uk


Have You Had Your Meningitis ACWY Vaccine Before Coming To University?

YES - If the answer is YES brilliant, the vaccine will protect you against some of the most common causes of bacterial meningitis in the UK. (You still need to register with us as you never know when you might need us). 

NO - If the answer is NO, you need to get it NOW! Please come to the health centre to register and if you are under the age of 25 ask for your Meningitis ACWY vaccine. 

Make sure you know the signs and symptoms of Meningitis and Septicaemia as vaccines don't protect you against all types! For more information visit: https://www.meningitisnow.org/


Seasonal Flu Vaccination

Flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person.   For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.

Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.

The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.
