FAQ's

Can GP Practices offer IUCD, LARC and Chlamydia Screening to patients outside of their own register?

To receive the service the patient must be registered with an eligible Essex GP Practice.  This does not necessarily have to be the patients own practice, so if a practice wants to provide the service for a another practice they can - as long as the patient is registered with another eligible Essex GP.

GP practices are eligible if they fall within Essex County EXCLUDING the unitary authority areas of Southend and Thurrock.
