Guidance on how to include the chlamydia re-testing conversation within the patient care pathway.
Following an evidence review and professional and public consultation, the National Chlamydia Screening Programme (NCSP) has updated case management for those testing positive for chlamydia to include the routine offer of re-testing, around three months after treatment. The following case studies give examples of delivery models of existing practice. Whilst these examples may prove useful in guiding you, the decision to re-test and the model you choose is entirely down to local determination.
The NCSP will continue to support both local authorities and providers both maintain and improve their high standards. The case studies give examples of transparent performance reporting, ongoing self-assessment, peer challenge and sharing best practice.
