Please note PrEP appointments are now all face to face and no longer via phone.
PrEP services, including both initiation and review appointments are available to book online and this suits most of our patients. If you have tried this and have been unable to book an appointment, please check the availability in subsequent days. Appointments are generally added on a weekly basis to reflect staffing levels. This is to avoid appointment cancellation which can be very frustrating for both patients and staff. The number of patients that can be in our clinics at one time and staffing absences are still being affected by COVID.
For PrEP initiation appointments in particular, we acknowledge that the number of appointments does not always match the number of patients who opt to commence PrEP.
Since PrEP became available in Scotland in 2017, we have adapted the service to meet the needs of those wishing PrEP. We are continuing to look at availability and access to PrEP as we recognise that this is an extremely important measure for HIV prevention.
If you need to call for an appointment rather than book online our staff are happy to help but do not have any additional appointments available. The main phone switch board is open Monday to Friday 8.45am to 4.15pm on 0141 211 8130
HIV PrEP only protects you from the sexual transmission of HIV. PrEP does not protect you from other sexually transmitted infections. If you use HIV PrEP without condoms you are at risk of other sexually transmitted infections like syphilis, gonorrhoea and chlamydia.
You can now read the report: "How can we best deliver HIV Pre Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for maximum health gain?"
This may be of interest to some of our patients who took part in the research and also others for further information regarding PrEP services in Scotland.
Find out more about PrEP on the PrEP Scotland website.
Remember to check the expiry date! Especially if you stopped using PrEP for a while and restart. Remind yourself of how to safely take it by visiting: www.prep.scot.
