New resource for patients living with HIV

  • 1 Comment

The National AIDS Trust has launched an online resource designed to empower people living with HIV to get the most from health and social care services.

My Care My Voice sets out the rights and entitlements people living with HIV have when using services.

The resource includes an explanation of current clinical standards for HIV, so patients know what to expect, and how to navigate through the new NHS structures that have been introduced since April.  

A charity spokeswoman said: “It will also be a great resource for anyone supporting people living with HIV, for example nurses, to use to go through with people when they are first diagnosed or to refer to themselves.

“It addresses topics like sexual health, medication and confidentiality. You can also print out each page to give to patients to take away.”

David Asboe, chair of the British HIV Association, added: “This user-friendly guide will help people living with HIV to become true partners in care decisions.”
