Services for people living with HIV

Guidance for people living with HIV attending West Middlesex University Hospital

We understand that people living with HIV have specific concerns regarding how COVID-19 will affect them.

If you are living with HIV and worried about the risk of COVID-19, there is no current evidence  that you are at any greater risk of acquiring, or becoming unwell if your HIV is effectively treated.

However some people are may be at extra risk of corona virus infection if their HIV is not well controlled, or if their immune system is compromised for other reasons including cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, chronic liver or kidney disease, or if they take immunosuppressive therapy for cancers or other conditions.

Please follow current NHS guidance about how best to protect yourselves and others from corona virus.

Information regarding COVID-19 in people living with HIV is also available on the Terrence Higgins Trust website.

If your appointment is coming up soon we may contact you before to offer you a telephone consultation instead of coming into clinic. We will continue to update this advice if public health guidance changes.

Should you have concerns regarding access to sexual health services, please contact us on 020 8321 5675/2566/6831.

Please leave a message and the answerphone will be checked throughout the day Monday–Friday.
