Instructions for GPs
Given the current COVID-19 pandemic many patients living with HIV are keen to avoid coming into hospital unless absolutely necessary.
It would be helpful if patients could have bloods for routine monitoring performed at their GP surgery.
|Test||Frequency||Type of tube|
|HIV viral load||Every six months||1x EDTA “purple”|
|FBC||Every six months||1x EDTA “purple”|
|U&E||Every six months||
1x serum “yellow”
|LFT||Every six months|
The outpatient pharmacy are posting medication to patients’ homes on request and many stable patients are being reviewed through telephone appointments.
