HIV Screening

The only way to find out if you have HIV is to have a HIV test, as symptoms of HIV may not appear for many years. Nowadays, HIV is an entirely treatable condition.

If diagnosed and treated early, people living with HIV can enjoy a completely normal life and they are no longer infectious to others. However, one in ten people infected are not yet aware of their condition. Therefore, we now offer a routine HIV testing to every student who attends for a routine blood, NHS health checks and new patient registration.

The blood test is the most accurate test, and it takes a few days for the results. If the test is positive, you will be referred to a specialist HIV clinic for some more tests and a discussion about your treatment options. If you do not receive a phone call or a text message with your result within 2 weeks you should do one of the following:· Call the health centre· Check your NHS app for the result· Check your MyGP app for the result

If you don’t know your HIV status please visit us or call us and book your free HIV blood test.

What is HIV PrEP?

PrEP is a medication than can lower the chances of getting HIV when taken as prescribed.

PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis:

Pre= Before

Exposure= Coming into contact with

Prophylaxis= Prevention

So PrEP is a medication that is taken before you come into contact with HIV to prevent getting HIV virus.


PrEP creates a barrier in the body that can stop HIV from replicating and taking hold. If taken correctly, HIV PrEP is highly effective at stopping HIV being passed on.

HIV PrEP tablets contain two drugs called Tenofovir and Emtricitabine in a single tablet. These drugs have been used in HIV care for many years.

PrEP is safe to use with all hormonal contraception, HRT for menopause and gender-affirming hormones.


We are NOT able to provide HIV PrEP at the Health Centre .

HIV PrEP is available for free on the NHS from Sexual Health Clinics.

Our local Sexual Health clinic is at :
