"Having a screen"

About: Kirklees Sexual Health / Kirklees Sexual Health Outreach

(as the patient),

I, a student at Kirklees college have had a free chlamydia screen and I think that having the opportunity to do it here, for free rather than going to a GP gets more people involved in the process.

As well as the screening, we are offered a pen/underpants/headphones if we do the screening and we are offered free condoms, lube and dams that are very popular with other students.

Hi 'Fishingguy123' - wow thank you for your feedback - it sounds like you had a really positive experience with our Outreach Team. I know our workers work very hard to make sure that young people feel comfortable accessing our services, so I will make sure to tell them about your feedback.

Getting tested for chlamydia is so easy and makes such good sense - we recommend getting tested at least once a year or every time you change partners and you can do it in person at sexual health clinics (see our website for addresses and opening times - http://www.locala.org.uk/your-healthcare/contraception-and-sexual-health/ ) or even email, text or telephone for a testing kit to do at home:

Ring us - 01484 481030

Email us- chlamydia.screening@locala.org.uk

Text us - 81025 and put 'Chlasp' then your name, address and postcode

Or visit http://www.locala.org.uk/your-healthcare/chlamydia-screening-programme/ to request a kit online.

Thanks again for your comments from all of us at CHLASP! Sexual Health Outreach, Education and Training Team
