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.
