The ‘love bug', as it is often called, is a sexually transmitted disease, and EMS is working with NHS Oxfordshire to tour a mobile unit, fully equipped with chlamydia screening kits and testing facilities.

"Not everyone wants to visit a sexual health clinic and our Valentine's roadshow will give easy access to information and testing facilities so they can get themselves tested there and then," said NHS Oxfordshire consultant in public health - health improvement Angela Baker.

The programme launched earlier this week at an Oxfordshire high school and saw more than 160 young people tested - the number the Trust would normally test in a week.
