SEXUAL HEALTH

Patients between the ages of 16 and 25years are eligible for free Chlamydia testing.  Kits are available from our nurses, doctors and are available within the practice.  This is usually completed via a simple urine sample or occasionally a self taken swab.

Additionally you can see a doctor or nurse for advice around full sexual health screening (advised anytime you enter a new relationship).

Confidential sexual health care is also available across Cambridgeshire via iCash and you can self refer without needing to see a GP first.  For more information click here.
