Play Safe, Stay Safe

The University Health Centre has been successful in securing some funding from The Queens Nursing Institute to help raise awareness of Men’s Sexual health. The project aims to deliver sexual health screening via drop in clinics in the Student union Advice Centre and through self-screening packs which will be available around the University of Huddersfield and The University Health Centre.

The Queens Nursing Institute is a registered charity dedicated to improving the nursing care of people in the home and community and will be supporting this year long project.

Meningitis Vaccine

Meningitis and Septicaemia can kill very quickly!  As a fresher you are in a high risk group, particularly in the first few weeks of term. 

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 25 or under 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!

Changes To Repeat Prescription Requests 

Following the results of our GP Annual Survey 2015/16 we will no longer be accepting repeat medication requests over the telephone from the 1st May 2016. By changing the way you request your repeat prescriptions, this will free up the phone lines for patients ringing to make an appointment. For more information about this change, including alternative methods of requesting your repeat prescriptions, click here.
