RUClear is run by the NHS, the tests are of a high quality and
|RUClear offer free tests from the NHS, for
the sexually transmitted infections (STIs) chlamydia, gonorrhoea,
HIV and syphilis.
RUClear will NOT be able to provide Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea
tests to young people in Glossopdale from 1st April
2015. For Chlamydia test information after the 1st of
April please contact Derbyshire Central Booking Line: 01246
or ask at your GP service.
STIs are passed on through intimate sexual contact. They
can be passed on during vaginal, anal and oral sex, as well as
through other intimate contact with an infected partner.
Common STIs in this country include chlamydia and gonorrhoea and
RUClear offer a test and treatment which is free
and painless for these two infections. Across the
country all sexually active young people under 25 are being
encouraged to be tested for chlamydia as it is the most common STI
and most people do not know they have it. If left undiagnosed
it can lead to long term problems such as infertility.
At RUClear we also offer free testing for HIV and syphilis which
is a small finger prick blood sample. Both of these
infections, as well as being passed on through intimate sexual
contact, can be passed on through blood including sharing
needles. If left undiagnosed both of these infections can
drastically affect quality of life.
If you would like further information on how to receive a test
kit for some, or all of these infections please go to the 'Take a
Test' section or telephone our confidential help line.
