SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED.
AS WE ARE NOW IN THE UNIVERSITY "VACATION" PERIOD, YOU MAY BE AWARE THAT SOME OF OUR CLINICIANS ARE NOT AVAILABLE DURING THIS TIME. WE APPRECIATE THAT YOU MAY WISH TO SEE YOUR USUAL GP HOWEVER THIS IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE.
WE WILL ALWAYS ENDEVOUR TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THE BEST POSSIBLE CARE AND CONTINUITY THAT YOU DESERVE. WITH THIS IN MIND, IF IT IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR US TO BOOK YOUR APPOINTMENTS WITH YOUR REGULAR GP, PLEASE BOOK IN WITH ANOTHER CLINICIAN OR WAIT UNTIL YOUR PREFERRED CLINICIAN IS AVAILABLE. OUR NURSE PRACTITIONER CAN ALSO DEAL WITH MINOR ILLNESSES AND OUR PRACTICE PHARMACIST CAN HELP WITH MEDICATION REVIEWS AND PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING DURING THIS TIME.
The University Health Centre, Huddersfield
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.

Following extensive consultation with our stakeholders and the CCG we will reduce our boundary from 1st April 2020 as shown in the picture below. This has been done with the intention of protecting the bespoke services that we provide to the student population. Patients within the new boundary will be able to register at this practice.
The new area shown covers student residence buildings and includes Storthes Hall. The previous boundary is also shown.
Any students living outside the reduced area will be able to register with this practice as ‘Out of Area’ patients. This will mean that they are not entitled to home visits from this practice. The student may receive a home visit, if necessary, from a participating practice in the area by liaising with 111. They will be entitled to all other services.
