Streptococcus Screening

Did you know that screening for group A streptococcus is now available, free of charge, in our local points of service for individuals aged 3 and up?

If you have symptoms such as a sore throat, trouble swallowing or fever, you could have group A streptococcal pharyngitis (more commonly known as strep throat).

A rapid screening test can be performed on site by one of our professionals who will advise you on what to do based on your results and will be able to prescribe antibiotics, if necessary.
