PrEP Protects

Solent NHS Trust Sexual Health is now commissioned to provide PrEP for free to everyone who meets the eligibility criteria.

We are running a campaign to raise awareness of PrEP locally and how people can access this provision through our Sexual Health Services.

The campaign is primarily targeting the groups most impacted by HIV in the UK across to data from Public Health England, including gay and bisexual men, trans people and those from black African communities.

NEW! A free PrEP training resource for professionals has been launched for HIV Test Week 2022. This has been jointly developed with the Terrance Higgins Trust.

Please note we are asking patients to call 0300 300 2016 to book appointments for PrEP.
