PEPSE stands for Post-exposure prophylaxis after Sexual Exposure, which means giving medication to stop someone getting HIV if they may be at risk from sexual exposure in the last 72 hours.
How to access PEPSE
PEPSE is an emergency. Please call the clinic urgently and ask for an urgent appointment. If the clinic is closed, please go to your nearest Accident and Emergency Department.
PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis)
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV is the use of medications, either daily, or as and when needed, to prevent HIV from sexual exposure. To discuss this with a nurse or a doctor, please contact the clinic.
Before starting PrEP, you will need some baseline blood and urine tests, and a baseline STI screen. We will also offer you vaccinations if you require them.
If you are concerned that you might have any of these symptoms above or if you feel worried about something else, come and see us. The sooner you do, the better you’ll feel!
