National Chlamydia Screening Programme

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.

Chlamydia (kla-mid-ee-a) is the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the UK, affecting both men and women. You don’t need to have had lots of sexual partners to be at risk.

The NCSP aims to ensure that all sexually active young people under 25 are:

  • aware of chlamydia,
  • the effects
  • have access to free and confidential testing services
  • learn more about chlamydia; and
  • be able to visit local services for chlamydia screening.
