The National Cervical Screening Programme invites women aged 25 to 49 years old every 3 years for 'smear test'. Women aged 50 to 64 years are invited every 5 years for this test. Please contact the practice to book an appointment when you receive your invitation letter. The leaflet 'NHS cervical screening - helping you decide' can be downloaded here
All patients who are aged between 16 and 24 years who are sexually active are encouraged to take 'the Love Bug' test regularly, and each time they have a new sexual partner.
Test kits for chlamydia can be ordered online (at no cost and without your parent/guardian being informed) from https://chlamydia.sexualhealthoxfordshire.nhs.uk. Please note that GP practices no longer hold supplies of the test kits.
Don’t meet the criteria? Please contact or visit your Genitourinary Medicine (GUM) clinic to request a Chlamydia test. See www.sexualhealthoxfordshire.nhs.uk for clinic details
You will be contacted with your results by the Chlamydia National Screening Programme office, and offered treatment for chlamydia if appropriate (usually tablets to treat the infection).
