Appointments for PEP or PrEP advice, symptoms and treatment

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis or PrEP

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is medication that people who are at very high risk of catching HIV, can take to prevent HIV and is now available on the NHS.

Depending on the type of sex you have and your medical history there are different ways that you can take PrEP, and it is extremely effective if taken correctly.

Not everyone can take PrEP, for example some medications can interact badly, and it won’t work if you are already HIV-positive.

It is important to remember however it will not protect you against the other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as gonorrhea or syphilis.

People who take PrEP are recommended to have 3-monthly checkups for STIs and regular tests to ensure your kidneys are working well.

If you would like to find out more about PrEP, discuss starting PrEP, or be monitored while taking PrEP, please call 0203 312 6614 to arrange to speak to one of the team.

We also recommend that you read the this PrEP leaflet on the  i-Base website

NHS PrEP trial

The PrEP trial (also known as the IMPACT trial) is closed to new participants. The final visit for the trial must be undertaken before 12th October, at that visit you will be switched over to NHS funded PrEP.
If you are already enrolled on the trial and either need an appointment or are running low on tablets, please book an appointment to arrange to speak to one of the team.

Men who are not experiencing symptoms and don’t need PEP or PrEP advice

Men who are not experiencing symptoms and don’t need PEP or PrEP advice can get an online sexual health check-up with Sexual Health London .  If you live in a borough where the Sexual Health London service is not available, you can find your local service either through SH24 or NHS.uk (NHS Choices).

If you need a sexual health check-up and vaccinations,  Please call 0203 312 6614
