Please be aware that it is not a GP’s responsibility to issue school letters of absence for your children, regarding COVID-19 or other illness. Government guidance is that school attendance is mandatory unless your child is self-isolating, has symptoms of COVID-19, is close to someone who has COVID-19 or has received a letter advising them to shield.

Chlamydia Testing

Chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted Infection (STI) in the UK.  Chlamydia is easily passed from one person to another through unprotected sex (i.e. not using a condom).

Most people with chlamydia don’t get any symptoms so if you are 15 - 25 years old and sexually active, you should get tested for chlamydia annually or when you change your sexual partner.

The test is free and simple, all you need to do is provide us with a urine sample (packs are available in toilets at all sites, or ask at reception). Just fill in your details on the sample pot and the form and hand it in at the reception desk.
