HIV/Aids Service

The North Bristol NHS Trust HIV Service is based at Southmead Hospital Bristol.

Where patients are known to be HIV positive they should be referred to the HIV specialist nurses via email,

HIV testing would normally be undertaken by the GP, particularly now when treatment is so beneficial.

Where there are delicate issues regarding HIV testing patients can be referred to the specialist HIV team for pre test counselling.
