Promoting Chlamydia Screening with Posters and Leaflets in General Practice—A Qualitative Study

General practice staff are reluctant to discuss sexual health opportunistically in all consultations. Health promotion materials may help alleviate this barrier. Chlamydia screening promotion posters and leaflets, produced by the English National Chlamydia Screening Programme (NCSP), have been available to general practices, through local chlamydia screening offices, since its launch. In this study we explored the attitudes of general practice staff to

these screening promotional materials, how they used them, and explored other promotional strategies to encourage chlamydia screening.
