Chlamydia Screening

Genital Chlamydia (chlamydia) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the UK. It often causes no symptoms, and can be passed on to others without you realising. However, symptoms and complications may develop if it is left untreated. A short course of an antibiotic clears the infection in most cases.

The National Chlamydia Screening Programme has been introduced in England for anyone aged 15 to under 25 years old. This means free chlamydial tests are available every year or whenever you change your sexual partner. The aim is to detect chlamydia early so it can be treated promptly. This should help to reduce the risk of transmission and also reduce the risk of developing complications.

A free testing kit can be collected from either reception, the Health Care Assistants, Nurses or Doctors. The test is easy:- men will be asked to give a urine sample and women can either give a urine sample or take a swab from themselves.

Cryotherapy

Run by the Doctors on Fridays to treat a variety of skin lesions    including warts and verrucae.
