In a report Public Health England said the impact of STIs remains greatest in young people aged 15 to 24, especially among gay men and among black and minority ethnic populations.
Commenting on the figures, Dr Olwen Williams, president of the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV, said: "These dramatic increases in syphilis and gonorrhea are a huge concern and must provide a wake-up call to the government about the importance of ensuring that high-quality, easily accessible sexual health services are available for all those who need them".
This comes after a syphilis sufferer, who has been made anonymous and given the name Gavin, urged anyone who has had unprotected sex to get themselves tested after he experienced no symptoms and only discovered the STI during a routine at-home test.

Consistent and correct condom use with new and casual partners is the best defense against STIs, and if you are at risk, regular check-ups are essential to enable early diagnosis and treatment.
