Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP)

If you think you have been exposed to HIV, we offer post-exposure prophylaxis, commonly known as PEP.

PEP is a method of preventing HIV infection which involves using a short course of the drugs used to treat HIV, soon after (up to 72 hours) a person may have been exposed to the virus.

PLEASE NOTE: If you need this medication before Tuesday, 30th August then please go to your local A&E department, where staff will contact a HIV specialist able to prescribe PEP as we are closed Bank Holiday Monday.
