This consultation closes at

Consultation description

This consultation follows an external peer review of the scientific evidence for the National Chlamydia Screening Programme (NCSP) which Public Health England (PHE) convened to ensure that the design, implementation and evaluation of the NCSP is based on the best available evidence.

The panel provided the NCSP with a series of recommendations after reviewing the evidence. Both the evidence pack and the panel’s report are available to view on this page.

The proposed revised policy incorporates initial feedback from professional stakeholders and young people and would implement the recommendations from the review group and align the NCSP with the latest scientific evidence.

To respond to the consultation, please first read ‘Proposal for revised NCSP policy’, then go to the Consultation on proposal for revised NCSP policy.
