Dual Screening Scheme
(also known as Chlamydia Screening Programme)
This is part of a national screening programme and is for those aged 15-24 years. The national programme offers screening for Chlamydia only but in the North East we are screening for both Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea. Only one sample is needed: urine sample for young men and swab for young women ( or if postal test a urine sample) . You can visit any of our clinics to do these tests or request a postal pack by clicking here.
You will receive a text message which will either tell you that your healthcheck is clear or will ask you to ring a number to discuss the results of your test. Treatment and follow up will be through one of clinics. If you do not respond to our text message we will write to you and possibly contact your GP to make sure you get the treatment needed for the infection.
