I would like to let you know that I am now providing prescriptions for HIV PREP on a private basis. PREP or pre exposure prophylaxis is given to HIV negative patients at high risk of catching HIV. It is not yet available on the NHS and might not be till late 2016. I feel this is too long to wait. Research has shown that by correctly taking PREP the risk of catching HIV is reduced by 86%. Together with condom use this is another weapon in the arsenal to protect against HIV infection and I feel it is important to offer this option to my patients now, rather than make them wait till the NHS catches up.
I can either do a prescription and you can source the medication yourself, or I can obtain the medication for you. I would need confirmation of negative HIV status which I can do for you on the day with a simple blood test. We will go through all the potential risks and side effects and discuss any adherence issues. I can also do any other routine blood tests and monitor you for side effects.
Together we can make a difference. If you would like to discuss this further please call me on 02031979100.
