NHS Oxfordshire: supporting CCGs with accessible services

NHS Oxfordshire approached Celesio UK with the aim of improving its chlamydia screening rates among the 16-to-24-year-old age group as part of the national chlamydia screening campaign.

We designed and provided the CCG with a website where patients can register for screening. After registering, our Online Doctor service sends patients a test kit they can use at home and then send back to the lab. If the test result is negative, the patient is sent a text message from our service.

In the case of a positive result, NHS Oxfordshire is informed so that staff can arrange a followup appointment.
