PrEP Impact Trial

The NHS is funding free PrEP through the PrEP Impact Study. Everyone on the trial will get NHS funded PrEP until at least October 2020. Only those at very high risk of catching HIV are eligible to join. The official study website contains information about the study, the patient information leaflet and details of who can join.

The Prepster website has this really useful summary of the key issues you need to consider and a summary of who can join. We recommend you take a look.

Dean Street is currently open to recruitment. The main trial website lists all the other clinics in the country that are also recruiting.

The study requires most gay men to have tested for HIV in the year before joining. If you haven’t tested in the last 12 months you should get tested now.

People wanting to start PrEP or want to transfer their PrEP care can walk into Dean Street Express without an appointment
