Details

The National Chlamydia Screening Programme (NCSP) recommends all sexually active under-25 year olds are tested annually for chlamydia, or on change of sexual partner. NCSP policy on case management was updated in 2013 to recommend that case management of those testing positive for chlamydia should include a routine offer of re-testing around 3 months after treatment.
