PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV)
PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis.
PrEP is available to anyone who may be exposed to the HIV virus.
Anyone can access PrEP from their local sexual health clinic. PrEP patients will be regularly screened for all STIs but especially HIV.
To request an appointment from the axess service, patients can contact us on 0300 323 1300 (see website for telephone opening times) and ask for a PrEP assessment.
If you are already prescribed PrEP and are registered as a patient at axess clinics, you can attend the PrEP Express in our Liverpool City Centre clinic at The Beat, Hanover Street. The PrEP Express is open Fridays, 9:15am-12:00pm.
The PrEP Express allows patients already on PrEP to access their medication faster than they usually would.
To register for the PrEP Express, you can book online or by ringing the Liverpool City Centre axess clinic on 0300 323 1300 (option 4).
