GP London specialises in providing convenient, fast and discreet Same Day Chlamydia Testing and sexual health screening in London. Our Walk in chlamydia test and sexual health screening in London is also affordable.
You can book a same-day appointment or get a walk-in appointment for chlamydia testing, and we are available seven days a week. Chlamydia testing doesn’t require a blood sample but a self-swab or urine sample.
Our standard gonorrhoea and chlamydia test cost about £63, and the results will be available in two days, but you can request express testing at an additional cost to get your result on the day.
We keep a secure record, and your test result will be confidential. If your chlamydia test result is positive, a simple course of antibiotics will clear the infection.
Men who want a chlamydia test mustn’t pass urine one hour before the test. If you want to get chlamydia or other STI test, do not urinate for at least one hour before you consult with the GP.
You would pay a GP consultation fee before your testing. We offer different sexual health testing packages, including chlamydia testing.
The table below shows the STI testing packages, tests and turnaround time.

We provide other tests besides those listed above. Our expert GPs will advise you during your initial consultation on the most suitable STI test, depending on your situation.
The turnaround time for the lab tests above is estimated and can vary. If you take the test after 1 pm, we classify the test as the next day. You will get a written analysis of the result in one working day after the results are available from the lab.
The same doctor who requested your test will likely be the same doctor to review it. This is the best practice but may mean an additional one working day to your timing. If you have several tests, we will report them together, except the first result gives a reason to be concerned.
In some cases, the preliminary result will determine the additional test needed. In this case, your result will take longer, but this service has no additional cost.
Chlamydia is a common STI (sexually transmitted infection) in the UK, but its treatment is easy. Chlamydia occurs from an infection of the bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis, transmitted via vaginal fluids and semen.
Most people infected with chlamydia do not present symptoms, and when symptoms occur, it is usually in the later stages of the infection.
Most people contract chlamydia through sex with an infected person. Chlamydia transmission occurs through:
Wearing a condom during sexual intercourse can protect you from chlamydia and other STIs.
Most people infected with chlamydia experience no symptoms; if symptoms occur, they are in the later stages of the infection. Research shows that seven in ten women and five in ten men with chlamydia do not experience symptoms.
This makes regular sexual health screening necessary to know if you have chlamydia and get treatment to prevent the further spread of the chlamydia
If you have unprotected sex and think you have chlamydia, it is best to wait at least two weeks after exposure before testing for chlamydia. Testing before this period may give a false negative.
Chlamydia testing is simple, with a swab sample taken from the infected area, such as the vagina, penis or mouth, or a urine sample. Ensure you do not pass urine for two hours before producing a urine sample for the test. This helps give a more accurate result.
Gonorrhoea usually presents the same symptoms as gonorrhoea, so their testing is usually done together. You should consider testing for other STIs or have a full sexual health screening.
You can reduce your risk of having chlamydia by using condoms during vaginal, anal or oral sex or using vaginal dams during female oral sex or contact between female genitals. Do not share sex toys, and if you have to share a sex toy, wash it and use a condom to cover the toy before sharing.
People diagnosed with chlamydia require a course of antibiotics. The antibiotics may be for seven days or one day, depending on the severity of the infection. Sex partners should get tested and treated to reduce the chances of re-infection or spreading the infection to other people.
