HIV testing in men who have sex with men and in black africans

21st May 2011 by Louise Hudman

2 guidelines here:

The aim is to normalise HIV testing. The following to targets were new for me:

  • All new registrations in areas with incidence of HIV > 2/1000
  • All men registering in an area with a large community of men who have sex with men.
  • All people registering from a country with a high prevalence of HIV.
  • Men who have sex with men should be offered annual testing, if sexually active.

Point-of-contact testing. I was not aware that ‘point of contact’ testing is now available in some areas.

"LocumDeck is self-explanatory and having never made/sent an invoice before it's made my life a lot easier, and made me feel reassured I hadn’t forgotten anything important.

I’ve recommended it to my colleague/friend who is also starting out as a GP locum."
