PEP emergency medicines for exposure to HIV
During your PEP treatment, you need to have blood tests and appointments. You also have follow-up appointments a few months after you finish your treatment. How often you need to be seen depends on your treatment.
Clinics for follow-up appointments
It's important that you come to your follow-up appointments at the right clinic.
For PEP after sexual exposure
Go to Burrell Street clinic.
For PEP after exposure at work (occupational)
Go to the occupational health department.
For non-sexual and non-occupational exposure
The team that you see in the emergency department (A&E) explain where you need to go.
For London Ambulance Service staff
Please ask for a copy of the risk assessment and treatment received, and email it to: [email protected]
We recommend repeating an HIV test 6.5 weeks after you finish PEP. You can do this through a GP or your occupational health team.
You might also need hepatitis B vaccines, depending on your blood test results. Please speak to your GP or occupational health team about this.
