Chlamydia + Gonorrhoea Screen & Treatment

Given the current outbreak of COVID-19 it has been agreed that Locally Commissioned Services will continue on the 2019-20 terms, as an implied contract for 6 months, until 30th September 2020. If your pharmacy continues to deliver the services outlined, we will continue to pay you for this, in line with the 2019-20 payment schedule, except for the RUClear card referral payment.

RUClear ceased their service on the 23rd March 2020. Please can you therefore destroy any remaining cards you have and stop referring people to the RUClear website. Chlamydia screening currently can be obtained through postal kits via the following link and we would recommend that you still suggest 16-24 year olds get screened for Chlamydia via this route.
