CATCH UP – A MEDICAL UPDATE FORUM 14/05/15

Here is what you missed if you were caught out in the rain last Thursday:

Chris Sandford, Patient Representative at Bloomsbury, opened the evening with a general overview of HIV globally and in the UK today. Putting things in perspective can help us challenge some of the misbeliefs and negative attitudes about HIV. It also helps us appreciate the high standards of service, care and support provided by the Mortimer Market Centre.

Simon Collins, HIV positive treatment advocate and coordinator at I-Base, explained how we can access this community led information platform. He stressed the importance of making the best of your time in care by being informed and engaging in treatment relevant conversations with your doctor. He then moved on to talk about PReP, generic drugs, the cost implications they will have on the NHS and, consequently, on us as patients.  http://i-base.info/slide-sets/
