Easter Bank Holiday Weekend & Clinic Closure

This upcoming weekend will mark the start of the bank holiday weekend that will get us through to our summer holidays! Its like a warmer, less expensive Christmas. Easter consists of a four day weekend (what I like to call a mini spring break) and chocolate. Oh yes, lets not forget the chocolate 🙂

Think you may need Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP)?

If you think you may have been exposed to HIV in the last 72 hours  please go straight to A&E in the main grounds of Manchester Royal Infirmary, to be be assessed for Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP).

On that note, here’s to making the most of your holiday, no matter what the sugary hurdles.
