Children's HIV family services

About

We are the largest family HIV clinic in the UK. We are very aware that this chronic infection affects parents and children, so our ethos of care is to support families as far as possible to stay well, get on with their lives, and not be held back by HIV.

Clinics are held twice a week in children’s outpatients and parents and children receive 'one-stop shop care'.

Rapid tests for HIV are available through our clinical nurse specialist team and we also provide postnatal testing for babies born to HIV-positive mothers.

Additional information

Clinical trials and research

Children and families attending the clinic will be offered to participate in relevant clinical trials: including trials of new treatments run by the Paediatric European Network for the Treatment of AIDS, trials of immune responses to HIV (CHERUB UK); and any other trials as they come up. All participation is voluntary.
