Chlamydia Screening

Aged 16 – 24? Get tested for Chlamydia today…

Chlamydia is common sexually transmitted infection. People under the age of 25 years are most at risk, and therefore need regular check ups.

Chlamydia is known as a very quiet disease because most people who contract it do not experience any noticeable symptoms. Untreated, Chlamydia can cause long-term damage such as infertility.

All it takes to get tested is an appointment during surgery hours with the nurse and we urge our patients to come up and get tested.
