HIV Service in Hertfordshire

What we do

The HIV Service in Hertfordshire offers outpatient care of HIV positive individuals including investigations, antiretroviral treatment and vaccinations for hepatitis B and HPV. We can refer patients to the many specialist HIV services based at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Our daily clinics are based in Stevenage and Watford and are open Mon–Fri, 9am–5pm but are closed on the first and third Wednesday morning of each month.

Genitourinary medicine (GUM) services are provided by Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust and HIV patients can have GUM care at the same locations.

Drug interactions between HIV medications and other drugs are very common. We strongly recommend checking the HIV Drug Interactions website before taking any new medications, including topical preparations and supplements.

If you need further information or advice about HIV medications or interactions, you can contact the Medicines Information Service on 020 3315 2704 or email med.info@nhs.net (open Mon–Fri, 9am–5pm).
