MPs visit our sexual health clinics leading on HIV and Monkeypox care

22 July 2022

Members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on HIV and AIDS visited our Soho clinics to hear important insight from our expert clinicians.

On Wednesday 20 July 2022, our sexual health services at 56 Dean Street and Dean Street Express were visited by members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on HIV and AIDS—Steve Brine MP, Baroness Barker, and Lloyd Russell Moyle MP. 

They had a tour of our state-of-the-art facilities and learnt how patients can conveniently and efficiently use the sexual health testing services. Our Trust is leading on the Monkeypox outbreak, treating a large proportion of the cases in the UK, and vaccinating high-risk groups.

This visit was an opportunity to let the government know about the work we are doing, the unique pressures our sexual health services face, and how they can be supported to do even better.
