Thirty PrEP tablets for only £55.
We’ve created PrEP Shop to make it easier for you to buy generic HIV PrEP from someone you trust. By using the buying power of the NHS we aim to keep prices as affordable as we can.
If you’re taking PrEP, it’s really important to get the right advice, run some tests, check you don’t have Hepatitis B , make sure that any other drugs or supplements you take don’t interact with PrEP and that you don’t have any other health problems that might be an issue. PrEP Shop keeps things safe by linking all these things with the doctors and pharmacists who write and check your prescriptions.
Our current price is £55 for 30 tablets. (The price will drop significantly from May 28th 2019).
HIV PrEP (Pre-exposure prophylaxis) involves taking pills containing the drugs tenofovir & emtricitabine to protect you from catching HIV. It works really well if you take it correctly. For more information about PrEP and how to take it, visit our YouTube playlist. We recommend that you read this PrEP leaflet on the ‘i-Base’ website.
There’s some paperwork we need to complete with you before we are allowed to prescribe you PrEP. We’ll need to register you for ‘Additional Private Care’ and then run some tests to check it’s safe to prescribe you it.
Tell us that you want to buy from ‘PrEP Shop’ during your visit to ‘56 Dean Street’ or ‘Dean Street Express’. People starting PrEP can walk into Dean Street Express without making an appointment. We’ll explain how ‘Additional Private Care’ works and ask you to sign the paperwork.
Additional Private Care where you buy extra healthcare on top of standard NHS care. In this case your sexual health screening and monitoring tests are provided free by the NHS. You’ll just pay for the prescribing and supply of the PrEP drugs.
You’ll need to sign some paperwork confirming you understand the following information.
We’ve also summarised it in the video.
PrEP Shop is just one way that you may be able to get HIV PrEP. There are several other options. People at very high risk of HIV may be eligible to get free NHS funded PrEP by joining the PrEP Impact study. It is also legal to purchase PrEP online from abroad and import up to 3 months supply into the UK for personal use. Terrence Higgins Trust list online suppliers that they recommend on the ‘I want PrEP now’ website.
