Harrison Wing - Outpatient care for people living with HIV

At Harrison Wing in St Thomas' we provide specialist outpatient care and treatment for people living with HIV. We deal with the management of HIV infection and its associated problems, HIV treatments and check-ups.

Specialist HIV services
Services offered by appointment include access to specialist HIV doctors for general HIV medical management, a psychiatrist, an academic research unit and a clinical trials unit.
Specialist clinics include:
• a women's/family clinic

Specialist support services

Clinical nurse specialists
Our clinical nurse specialists provide support and advice for all patients. One of the nurses works closely with the specialist midwife, providing advice and support to women attending the antenatal clinic. 2 of the nurses run clinics for stable patients attending their 4-monthly reviews. They also see patients who:
• have recently started or switched treatment
• need support in taking their medication
• may be having problems with side effects or the social implications of taking medication
Research
The clinical trials unit and the academic research unit conduct a variety of drug trials and observational studies within the Harrison Wing. These studies aim to improve our understanding of the condition and discover better treatments. It is up to you whether you want to take part in research and it will not affect your care in any way. A doctor or a research nurse will be very happy to give you more information and discuss your suitability for a trial.
