COVID-19 ADVICE FOR PATIENTS

During the outbreak we are also operating services on behalf of 10 Hammersmith Broadway, John Hunter and Kobler clinics.

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we ask all our patients to call us before attending.

1. If you have symptoms suggestive of a respiratory tract infection (cough, fever, shortness of breath), or think you may have come into contact with coronavirus, do not attend our service. Call the clinic on 020 3315 5656 for sexual health advice. COVID-19 advice is available via NHS111 online here.

2. If you are attending our service for sexual healthcare Please call us before coming and consider whether your visit could be postponed.  This is to reduce the number of patients sharing our waiting areas.  Self testing packs for routine checks can ordered online via www.deanstreet.shl.uk.

3. If you are HIV positive and worried about your risk of coronavirus there is currently no evidence that people living with HIV are at greater risk of either getting coronavirus, or becoming unwell due to coronavirus. However, the British HIV Association recommend that HIV positive people with a CD4 count under 50 follow the 12 week social isolation advice to remain at home for 12 weeks. Please don’t attend clinic to check your CD4 count.  Follow current NHS guidance about how best to protect yourselves and others from coronavirus, available here.

We have extended our HIV Telephone Clinic service. Please only call us for urgent advice or if you have less than six weeks left of your HIV meds. We will continue to update this advice if public health guidance changes.

If you are HIV positive and feel unwell, call the Rapid Review service based at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital on 07805813558 (Mon-Fri 8.30am-2pm)
