PILOT PROJECT TO DETECT AND TREAT STREPTOCOCCUS A
Streptococcus A (commonly known as strep A) is a bacterial infection that can affect adults and children alike, causing a sore throat and other complications, if left untreated. Since early detection is essential in preventing the spread of the infection, treatment must be started quickly.
Anyone with symptoms—such as a sore throat, fever or difficulty swallowing can be screened at no charge. A rapid screening procedure will be performed by qualified nurses. You will receive your results quickly and, if necessary, advice on follow-up steps will be provided.
Appointments for strep A screening and treatment are available:
