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.

We are changing the way our repeat prescription service works... 

From the 1st May 2016 you will no longer be able to order your medications over the phone. Don't panic - there are lots of ways to order your medications;

  • Online - register for online request of repeat medications and appointments.
  • Once you have online access, you can use the patient access app to request your medication - see leaflet how repeat prescriptions will change.
  • Written request (posted to the surgery).
  • Ordering your request in person, at the reception desk.

(If you do not have access to the internet you may continue to telephone your repeat prescription request).

Please allow at least 48 hours for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.


Repeat Prescriptions

At your registration health check details of on-going medication will be taken. When you need a new supply, contact the Health Centre in person, online or by letter, giving details of your request. Your prescription will be ready within 48 hours.

Please note - the ‘pill’ - oral contraceptive - is not automatically a repeat drug. Please make a clinic appointment - we have 5 sexual health clinics per week which are run by a nurse and a doctor, please request your appointment in one of these clinics rather than a normal GP clinic appointment.


Electronic Prescription Service

As from 12th August 2014 we are going live with EPS (Electronic Prescription Service), this means when you request a repeat prescription from the Health Centre you can collect the prescription  straight from your nominated Pharmacy/Chemist.
