RECENT ANNOUNCEMENT ON INJECTABLE HIV TREATMENT

NHS NICE has approved injectable HIV medication in a draft document but don't plan to give final national approval until early 2022.

The injectable medication is likely to be in high demand and we will therefore implement a local roll out based on patient need. You can discuss the injection with your doctor at your next routine appointment when we will hopefully have more information.

It is very important to continue to take your current medication in the meantime, as currently it looks like patients with a detectable viral load will not be eligible for the injections

A direct link to the draft NICE guidance can be found by NICE Guidance

For up to date information regarding coronavirus for our patients living with HIV, please visit the Terrence Higgins Trust website https://www.tht.org.uk/news/coronavirus-covid-19

As far as we know there are no shortages of HIV medication and are working with all our services to maintain access to treatment. This may mean for some stable patients a prescription without a doctor review. We will contact you prior to your appointment if this is the case.

For the protection of our staff and other patients, please do not visit a clinic if you have symptoms of coronovirus - see https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ for further NHS COVID-19 information
