If you think you have been exposed to HIV, for example having unprotected sex with someone who may be HIV positive, then you can reduce your risk of becoming infected with HIV by taking Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) which is a short course of tablets. PEP can be taken up to 72 hours (3 days) after sexual exposure but is more likely to be effective within 24 hours (1 day) so it's important to act very quickly.
You can access PEP by coming to Sandyford during our opening hours. You do not need an appointment to access PEP. Out with these times please attend your local A&E department.
