PrEP Impact trial

PrEP Impact trial update

Due to a large number of requests for places on the PrEP Impact study in Birmingham, it is expected that the remaining spaces will be filled by February 2019.

Enrolment into the study takes place in specific Umbrella PrEP advice clinics.

Appointments at the PrEP advice clinics are now fully booked until May 2019. We predict that the Birmingham trial will have reached full capacity through these appointments by February.

Taking PrEP safely

The tests necessary to take PrEP safely are now available at any Umbrella clinic. This includes kidney function testing. Staff can also give information leaflets on PrEP.
