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/

The University Health Centre, Huddersfield

133903132 We are an NHS General Practice, providing Personal Medical Services to our registered patients. This practice is not a limited partnership.

From the 7th January 2016 the practice has welcomed Medical Students to the team. This means students will be with us on Tuesdays and Thursdays and will be sitting in on some clinics. They will be learning how to take detailed histories from a patient in order to make a diagnosis. If you do not wish for the medical student to be present during your consultation, please let the receptionist know.

We are situated off the main campus, the entrance is on the tow path at the side of the canal (follow the signs on campus for HUBS and look to the left as you cross the bridge, turn left down the steps before you get to the entrance to the HUBS building). 

Disabled access including lift is available via the main entrance off the canal towpath.

Proposed Change to Practice Boundary for New Patients Only

The University Health Centre would like to apply to change the local boundary our practice covers for NEW PATIENT REGISTRATIONS ONLY. We want to reduce the size of the boundary for registering new patients which will mean that we will no longer cover some of the local areas we cover now. The areas that would be affected by any change would be areas extending outside of the new boundary line which is proposed as follows:-

Boundary Map

A proposed new boundary for new patient registrations has been developed which includes all of the current Halls of Residence for students.  We must stress that these changes will only impact on new patient registrations.  Please note that it is not our intention to make any changes to the Storthes Hall Park area – this will remain as an “add on” for new patient registration.

 

What is a practice boundary?

All GP practices are given an area to cover.  This means that the service covers patients who live within a certain boundary. If you live outside the boundary the practice covers you will not be able to register with the practice.   

How can the practice change the boundary?

The practice will apply to NHS Greater Huddersfield Clinical Commissioning Group (GHCCG) who buy (commission) health care for local people to change the current boundary of the practice. The CCG will consider the application based on:

  • Other GP services available
  • The patient list size, staff and building
  • The views of patients and stakeholders
  • An equality impact assessment

What will happen if a boundary change is approved?

If a boundary change is approved it will mean that any new patients who live outside the boundary will not be able to register with the practice.  Patients who are already registered with the practice now, but who live outside the new proposed boundary, will be able to stay at the practice – if newly registered patients subsequently move out of the core area they will only be able to remain on the Practice List at the discretion of the Partners.

We need your views

The practice wants to ensure that your views are considered in the boundary change request.  If you would like to tell us what you think please fill out the short survey.
