Hi Cockerleeky - thank you for sending in your feedback about our outreach service, it sounds like you had a positive and worthwhile experience.

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 and without a test you'll probably not even know anything is wrong. If left untreated it can cause serious long term effects.

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 don't even need to be examined.

If you or a friend need a test again then please give our team a call on 01484 481030 and we can even arrange for a test to be sent out to you - it's that simple. Similarly if you are under 25, and have a C Card, you can access free condoms from any contraception and sexual health clinic in the Kirklees area- check out the opening times and location on the Locala webpage http://www.locala.org.uk/your-healthcare/contraception-and-sexual-health/

Many thanks
