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 or

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:

Patients are free to consult with whichever Doctor or Advanced Nurse Practitioner they choose, irrespective of their named doctor. However, it is best if some continuity can be maintained by seeing the same Doctor/Advanced Nurse Practitioner for each problem.

If you have a preference for a particular Doctor or Advance Nurse Practitioner, please inform our reception staff.

All GPs are registered with the General Medical Council.

Please be aware that our Advanced Nurse Practitioners are highly skilled clinicians and are able to deal with most routine consultations. If unsure please ask reception if your problem can be dealt with by them.
