56 Dean Street, London: Private prescription of PrEP until NHS prescription approved

We at 56 Dean Street feel that in addition to consistent condom use, PREP is an effective method of HIV prevention and should form part of routine risk reduction particularly in men participating in unprotected anal intercourse or having frequent chem sex.
