Who to See: All Nurses
A range of sexual health services are offered at the surgery including:
We are also part of the National Chlamydia Screening Programme and offer a free Chlamydia check for anyone under the age of 25 on an annual basis, or have a new sexual partner. This is a simple urine test and we have kits available from reception so that you do not need to see a doctor or nurse if you do not wish to.
