29/11/2021 – We are currently experiencing some technical issues with our phone lines and are working to rectify this. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

We are experiencing a high demand for our services and we are working hard to make sure that you are seen as quickly as possible.

Our colleagues on the phone lines will need to ask questions to help ensure that our urgent appointments are available for those who are most unwell.

Patients with non-urgent issues may wait a little longer for an appointment but most will still be seen within 14 days.

Your GP may be able to help with your contraception needs.  

Please be patient with our colleagues and thank you for your understanding.

 

We are open if you require Sexual health/Contraception care, please continue to call our central booking line on 01904 721111 and press option 1.

What about sexual partners?

What about sexual partners?

What should you tell sexual partners if you find out you have chlamydia?

  • It is really important that partners get treated too!

  • Chlamydia can be easily passed on, so it is likely that anyone you've had sex with recently may also have the infection.

  • If your current sexual partner isn't treated at the same time as you, you may get the infection back again.

How do partners get treated?

  • It's not always easy to tell your partner or ex-partner that you have had a positive test.

  • Your nurse can talk with you about how best to inform partners.

  • You may wish to bring your partner with you when you attend for treatment - you may be seen together or separately.

  • If you don't want to tell someone yourself, the nurse can contact him or her to offer treatment, without giving any information about you.

What if you find out that someone you've had sex with has got chlamydia?

  • Treatment is recommended for anyone who knows that they have had sex (even with a condom) with another person who has been diagnosed with chlamydia.

  • It's generally safer to have treatment rather than wait for your own test result, just in case an infection gets missed.
