CPPE Chlamydia Screening and Treatment Public Health event
Thursday, 4 May, 2017 19.30 to 21.30 (light refreshments available from 19.00)
The Holiday Inn, Ipswich IP2 0UA
Approximately 75% of women and 50% of men with chlamydia have no symptoms. Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. It is very easy to treat and cure. For people who do develop symptoms, these may show up 1-3 weeks after
contact with chlamydia, many months later or not until the infection spreads.
How can you make young people more aware of this common STI?
You are invited to the CPPE Chlamydia Screening and Treatment Public Health event.
We will have an expert presentation from Josie Finch (Pharmacy Liaison Officer and Training Lead for sexual health, Terence Higgins Trust).
The focus of this programme is the role of the pharmacy team in chlamydia screening and treatment, and how it fits with the local sexual health services agenda. We discuss the treatment pathways available to a client, and how to handle problematic situations, as well as counsel and advise clients appropriately and sensitively.
These events are free of charge and open to pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and preregistration pharmacists. To book, please log on to
