Question

Can I get ART in the UK if I am coming over to study?

Hello, I tested HIV positive 2nd May 2022 and now I’m taking ART. I’m planning to study in the UK in September 2023. My question is can I get ART in UK after I arrive and how to get it?

Answer

Hi, how are you doing?

Yes you can get ART. ART is freely accessible in the UK to anyone. It does not matter if you are a resident of the UK or not.

Access is from a sexual health clinic. These are located all over the country and they can be accessed separately to your local doctor.

When coming over it is best to bring an ongoing supply of your own medication. This can help cover the time between accessing ART in the UK. The process is also sped up if you can bring along notes of your medical history so the correct medication can be given.
