Chlamydia Pathway - Consider referral and/or seek expert advice

All patients with a positive chlamydia test should be offered:

  • treatment
  • support to notify any partners
  • testing for other sexually transmitted infections (STIs)


Consider seeking expert advice if:

  • treatment intolerance
  • diagnostic uncertainty, eg equivocal test result, atypical symptoms
  • persistent symptoms following treatment
  • difficulty with partner notification
  • there is a high risk of gonorrhoea and intramuscular (IM) ceftriaxone is unavailable
  • rectal infection or patient is in contact with someone with LGV.
