National Chlamydia Screening Programme
Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the UK – 1 in 10 men and women under the age of 25 are tested positive for it. Most people who have
the infection have no symptoms but if left untreated, can spread to other parts of the body, and can lead to long term health problems.
For more information, please pick up a leaflet from the surgery, contact the Chlamydia Screening Office on 01753 635330 or click onto: www.chlamydiascreening.nhs.uk .
We provide free testing for under 25 year olds – the test is simple and painless, you don’t have to be examined, it’s confidential too, which means the screening office won’t tell anyone you’ve been tested, not even your GP, without your consent. They will arrange for you (and only you) to be notified of your results either by text, email, phone or post – you decide. 576
Please ask at the surgery for a test kit.
