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.

"I was introduced to the local locum chambers several months ago when I made a career move from partnership. I now combine salaried and locum roles. The chambers provides helpful support, leadership, advice and governance and reduces professional isolation. This combination of support reassures me and helps me provide safe and consistent care to patients within the community . There is a useful, innovative online portal - LocumDeck - which helps me access local work and which has efficient systems for reconciliation of finance including pensions. I would highly recommend joining a locum chambers for any GPs starting out in the locum world ."
