What is the NCSP?

The National Chlamydia Screening Programme (NCSP) is an NHS sexual health programme that was set up by the Department of Health in England in 2003.

The NCSP aims to ensure that all sexually active young people under 25 are aware of chlamydia, its effects, and have access to free and confidential testing services.

Get tested
Chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the UK; affecting both men and women. Most people who have it will have no symptoms, without a test you will probably not know anything is wrong. If you or your sexual partner are left untreated it can cause infertility (not being able to have children) and long term pelvic pain. If you are sexually active and under 25 you should be tested for chlamydia annually.

The test for chlamydia is simple – just one quick and painless test that you do yourself. You do NOT need to be examined!
