HIV Treatment and Support

Our HIV service offers support, advice and treatment to people with HIV.
Our dedicated HIV team is led by consultants and supported by specialist HIV nurses. We look after people from all ages, backgrounds and genders. It’s our job to explain everything, make you feel at ease and not to judge you.

How do we help?

Although there is no cure for HIV, modern treatments now enable most people with HIV to live a long and healthy life. We will help you monitor your condition and your treatment. In practical terms, that means we carry out blood tests and provide anti-retroviral medication if needed. We run HIV clinics on Tuesday and Friday mornings at the Hub at the Royal Cornwall Hospital, and also operate monthly satellite services in Penzance and Bodmin.

We can also help with HIV testing for partners and post-exposure prophylaxis, and can refer you to other specialist clinicians for review if needed.

Onsite at the Hub at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro, we also have a range of specialist HIV support services, including an HIV specialist pharmacist, social worker and Kernow Positive Support counselling. Our patients can also contact us at any time using our designated and confidential email account: Rch-tr.thebasement@nhs.net
