Only a third of men attend clinic at University of Huddersfield compared to women

 

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are on the rise among students at the University of Huddersfield.

 

Now nursing staff have been awarded funding of £5,000 from the Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI) to develop a bespoke STI screening service.


The aim is to increase engagement with the male population of the university – whether or not they are registered with the university practice.

 

Following a rise in STI at the university Sam McNeely, practice nurse manager at the University Health Centre, undertook a study and discovered that only a third of patients attending the health centre sexual health clinic were males.
