Chlamydia Screening Programme
You can access chlamydia screening at a number of venues including pharmacies and youth services. The scheme is aimed at people 15 – 24 years old, is free and also tests for Gonorrhoea using the same sample. If you don’t know too much about the scheme then have a look at our chlamydia screening page for more useful information.
Kits are available as either postal which means you can take the kit home, and post it back through the regular post at no cost to yourself, or provide a sample at the venue itself, and responsibility to return the kit to the sexual health service is with the worker issuing you the kit. Where postal kits are available this will be shown in the venue information.
Calderdale operates an Emergency Hormonal Contraception scheme at participating pharmacies which is aimed at females aged 13 – 25 years. In addition to this females over 25 and in receipt of income based benefits can also access this service. EHC provision is available through a consultation with the pharmacist to ensure the treatment is appropriate and where onward referral is required this can be done. It is important to know that this provision is provided free of charge. For more information on emergency contraception see our page. Emergency contraception should not be used as a replacement for longer term and planned hormonal contraception so if you need to access ongoing forms of contraception please contact the service so we can discuss your needs.
See map below for your nearest EHC scheme outlet. Please note venues and times may change at short notice so it is worth checking with the pharmacy to make sure they are running the scheme, and they are able to deliver this at the time you want to attend.
C-card operates in Calderdale and aims to support young people aged 13 to 18 have safe and healthy relationships, through providing advice and support on issues such as consent and choice. However, where a young person is sexually active and wishing to be so then C-card can provide Condoms / dams / Femidoms and Lube to ensure individuals can take steps to protect themselves from Sexually Transmitted Infections. If you want general information about STI’s (What they are and how they are caught!) then the family planning association and brook offer excellent websites links at family planning association and brook.
The map below shows open access points which means you can call in to any of these venues when they are open and request condoms through C-card. In addition to this, although not shown on the map venues such as Calderdale College, Open doors supported housing and The Foyer can offer C-card to their clients and service users so it’s always worth asking the services you use if they do C-card.
