PrEP is HERE !! (But Covid might change the way we deliver it for a while)
HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis for those at increased risk.
We are delighted to share that the long journey to rollout has come to an end following the announcement that provision of PrEP as a national programme is commencing.
It’s great that PrEP is now going to be widely available free-of-charge at sexual health clinics such as Sexual Health Hertfordshire and all Level 3 NHS GUM services across England. However we also know that such clinics are used disproportionately less by women, trans people and people of colour. We will be working hard to reach out to, and engage with, all groups affected by HIV to ensure they know about PrEP and how to access it.
We will be aiming to provide PrEP to those who are eligible from the start of November 2020. We are providing PrEP to those patients already using it, and taking on new patients (but during Covid we may not be able to start new patients as quickly as we would like).
