Eligibility criteria (who is the service for?)
Anyone with a diagnosis of HIV.
How can someone be referred?
The service is open-access, which means that you do not need to be referred to the clinic by a general practitioner (GP) or other healthcare professional.
Transferring your care from another centre
If you are HIV positive and transferring your care to the Bloomsbury Clinic from another centre, telephone our appointment booking line on 020 3317 5100 and ask for a Transfer Nurse Appointment.
If you have been newly diagnosed HIV positive at another centre but have not yet arranged follow up care with any centre, you can register as a new patient at the Bloomsbury Clinic.
Health advisors in the male or female sexual health clinics at Mortimer Market Centre will arrange your first appointment with Bloomsbury Clinic. Come to Mortimer Market Centre in the first instance and ask to speak to a health advisor - no appointment is necessary.
For further advice, telephone the Health Advisor Team on 020 3317 5100.
Can I use NHS E-Referral (formerly Choose and Book) to arrange my first outpatient appointment?
NHS E-Referral is not applicable to this service.
