On Monday October 22, 15 students were tested for chlamydia in the Charles as part of a YUSU awareness drive. The campaign is being fronted by Academic and Welfare Officer Grace Fletcher-Hall and Women’s Officer Laura Payne. Fletcher Hall said “1 in 10 students are infected with Chlamydia. It’s vital that people get tested, because if they find out they have it, it’s very easy to treat.” Under the new testing system, labelled the ‘Take-away Service, test samples can be taken at home and returned to the Clinic. Testing kits can be collected from Fletcher Hall or can be sent through internal mail for discretion. The trial will run throughout October and, if successful, should be permanently available to all students.
