You may have been exposed to HIV in the last 72hrs & think you need PEP

PEP is an anti-HIV medication that is prescribed to a HIV negative person, within 72 hours of potential exposure to HIV. Ideally it should be started within 24 hours. It needs to be taken for 28 days. A&E departments are able to start PEP when the clinic is closed.

PEP is recommended if there is a greater than 1 in 1000 chance of catching HIV. Check our PEP calculator to work out if you need it.

You can walk into 56 Dean Street without an appointment. Arrive as early in the day as possible.

Go straight to Level 1 reception.
