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.

Accessible Information Standard

The Accessible Information Standard aims to ensure that patients who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss have access to information they can understand and the communication support they may need. The Standard applies to service providers across the NHS and adult social care system. As organisations that provide NHS services, GP practices are required by law to follow the Standard under Section 250 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

Key requirements

There are five key requirements of the Standard and as a Practice we will;

 1. We will ask patients and carers if they have any information or communication needs, and find out how to meet their needs. 

2. Record those needs in a set way.

3. Highlight or flag the patient’s medical records, so it is clear that they have information or communication needs, and clearly explain how those needs should be met.

4. Share information about a person’s needs with other NHS and adult social care providers, when we have consent or permission to do so. 

5. Make sure that people receive information in an accessible way and communication support if they need it wherever we possibly can do.

Information leaflets for patients including easy read can be viewed below:

GP2GP - Transferring Your Electronic Health Record

Your GP Practice holds copies of your patient health record electronically and in paper format. Both contain the healthcare information about you that your GP needs including your medical history, medications, allergies, immunisations and vaccinations.

If you have previously registered with a different GP in England, upon registering at this practice your electronic record will, where possible, be transferred automatically from your previous practice through the use of an NHS system called GP2GP. Click here for more information.


Blood & Organ Donation Register

If you would like to register for the blood and organ donation register please visit the following website www.nhsbt.nhs.uk.


Accountable Named GP

Please note that all patients are allocated a named GP, upon registration, who is responsible for the patients’ overall care at the practice. Patients are able to contact the health centre if they wish to know who their named GP is. If they have a preference as to which GP it is, the health centre will try to make reasonable efforts to accommodate the request.
