samedaydoctor™ offers a comprehensive service that looks after all aspects of HIV care. Our HIV consultants will manage the care and treatment of anyone living with, or at risk of, HIV.
We can provide full care, or complement the care provided by the NHS.
Whilst an NHS-funded PrEP trial has begun in England, it only has limited availability. However, full treatment is available privately.
If you want to find out more about HIV or AIDS risk, are feeling anxious about HIV, or just want to talk to someone, either visit one of our clinics or arrange a phone/email consultation with one of our doctors or specialist HIV nurses.

If your HIV test is positive, our experienced doctors and nurses are on hand to help. We are able to facilitate transfer of care to the NHS, arrange for further testing, or offer long-term private management if required.
HIV treatment available at our clinics
Here at samedaydoctor™ we offer HIV treatment, specifically with pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) drugs which have been proven to reduce the chances of becoming infected by HIV in individuals at risk by up to 86%. This has significantly reduced the number of new HIV diagnoses.
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)
samedaydoctor™ is helping to stop the spread of HIV by increasing access to PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) drugs.
Studies on the use of PrEP treatment for HIV prevention have shown its use can drastically reduce the risk of transmission by 86%.
PrEP is currently undergoing limited trials by the NHS, but is available at our clinics. We also offer a PrEP monitoring service in the form of blood and urine testing for anyone on the drug.
The treatment is best suited to people who are at risk of catching HIV, such as those whose partners have HIV or a high risk of HIV exposure. PrEP is not a substitute for practising safer sex.
Consultations + blood & urine tests
£50 to £340 depending on monitoring needs.
PrEP medication costs can be discussed in advance or at consultation
Post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP)
It is possible, where indicated, to use antiretroviral drugs to attempt to stop HIV transmission after a high risk sexual contact (such as unprotected sex/broken condom with a person living with HIV or likely to be HIV positive).
We will only prescribe PEP if it is less than 72 hours since the contact, and recommend that treatment is started as soon as possible. The PEP course lasts 4 weeks, and it is generally well tolerated.
Further questions about PrEP and PEP
If you have any questions about the HIV treatment available to you or are concerned about your health, HIV symptoms, testing and diagnosis, PrEP or PEP please contact us to book a confidential appointment with one of our friendly specialist doctors at our walk-in HIV clinics in London Central or City.
