If you, or someone you have had sex with, has chlamydia you can attend a Shine drop-in clinic for treatment and testing.

If you have symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection (STI) call us for an appointment at our Symptomatic Clinic on Tuesday afternoons.  You are welcome to attend a Shine drop-in clinic for advice but we may not be able to offer you the treatment and care you need and will refer you to a service that can.
