Services for people living with HIV

The majority of our appointments have returned to face-to-face and we look forward to seeing you in person. However, we are happy to offer virtual reviews where appropriate—please ask about this when making an appointment.

COVID-19 advice

The current advice is that anyone who has a high temperature, a new continuous cough or you’ve lost your sense of smell or taste or it’s changed, should stay at home and call NHS 111 or visit the NHS 111 website. Do not attend the clinic if you have any of the above symptoms, unless you have screened negative for COVID-19.

Screening at home or in some community facilities is arranged through NHS 111 following a clinical assessment by phone.

There is specific advice for those who have returned from abroad.

If you are HIV positive and worried about your risk of coronavirus there is currently no evidence that people living with HIV are at any greater risk of either getting coronavirus, or becoming unwell due to coronavirus, than the general public.  We do not recommend that you attend for additional blood tests to check your CD4 count. We do recommend that you follow current NHS guidance about how best to protect yourselves and others from coronavirus.

If you are concerned about running out of medication, please email us on and we will arrange a further prescription. Please note, our clinicians are very busy currently and may not be able to access their personal emails. Please use the address above for correspondence.

We will continue to update this advice if public health guidance changes.

Did you know you can book an appointment for an over 50s review?

What?

You can take advantage of a comprehensive health review specifically designed for people aged 50 years and over.

Why?

Even people living with well managed HIV can be at higher risk of heart disease, kidney or bone problems as they grow older.

How?

Just ask at reception to book your next six-month appointment. 

The clinic is run by our specialist nurses, and will include your antiretroviral prescription and blood test monitoring. Please be aware a few extra blood tests and scans may be recommended.

Any questions? Please ask a member of the team.

Support and advice from the Sexual Health Adviser team

  • Living with HIV
  • Telling friends, partners or family about HIV
  • Difficulties with safer sex and relationships
  • Having a child
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Worries and concerns about the future
  • Concerns about alcohol and drugs and referral to specialist services
  • Assessment and referral for counselling/psychology/psychiatry
  • Referral to peer support and other support services
  • HIV and the law

You may contact the sexual health advisers on 020 3315 9779.
