UK community campaign calls for NHS England to be accountable for PrEP timeline

Simon Collins, HIV i-Base

The increasing frustration over lack of NHS access to PrEP, has lead to a communty campaign calling for the NHS to stick to it’s already delayed timeline for access. [1]

These concerns are especially important given that the UK PROUD study reported such dramtically protective results almost 18 months ago in October 2014. [2]

The campaign calls for NHS England to open an immedaite public consultation, in order for the decision over PrEP to be taken at a meeting in June 2016. There is urgent concern about how further delays might impact on whether PrEP is made available in England.

The campaign is calling for people to email a letter via the campaign website to Simon Stevens, Chief Executive of NHS England to ask him to make the consultation available immediately.
