In boys, this involves a urine test, and in girls, this involves a vaginal swab that you can take yourself.
These free testing kits can be collected from the surgery (if you are 15-24 years).
If you are outside this age range, please book an appointment to discus testing with the nurse or doctor.
More information can be found at the Chlamydia screening programme website with Livewell SouthWest.
If you have any symptoms such as discharge, or have had unprotected sex with a partner known to have an STI, it is recommended you have a full STI screen. Any of the below centres will be able to assist you.
