Welcome to the University Health Centre
We are an NHS General Practice, providing Personal Medical Services to our registered patients. This practice is not a limited partnership. The clinicians and staff at The University Health Centre in Huddersfield offer services such as the management of chronic diseases including asthma and diabetes. We also offer a wide variety of other services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations, sexual health services and health checks.
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 facilities including a lift are available at the practice. Access to the lift is via the main entrance off the canal towpath.
Our practice is now involved in the further training of doctors for the special skills required in primary care. Every six months we have a doctor attached to our practice who will initially see patients with one of the partners and then run their own surgery.
This doctor has the title of GP registrar. They are fully qualified doctors and will often have several years' experience of hospital medicine before joining us in general practice.
Despite the lifting of national Covid restrictions on 24 February, there has been no change in the requirement for patients, visitors and staff to wear face masks in healthcare settings. You will still need to need to wear a face mask when visiting the Health Centre. Thank you.
Due to current staff shortages, it may take longer than usual to answer calls. Appointments still need to be booked by calling us but please be aware there may be a delay.
We appreciate that this can be frustrating, but please remember that the staff who answer your call are doing their best to help you - so please be kind and repectful while they find the best way to assist.
Thank you for your patience; we will try to answer calls as quickly as possible.
For any other non urgent requests such as change of details, please send these via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Evening & Weekend Appointments
Daytime appointments don’t work for everyone. That’s why GP practices across Greater Huddersfield work together to provide extra appointments at evenings and weekends. If you are registered with a local practice, you can book an appointment locally to see a GP, physiotherapist or cytology (known as smears) when your normal practice is closed. This practice participates in the extended access scheme with appointments available on Thursday evenings.
