PrEP Impact Trial 

We have commenced recruitment again for  the PrEP trial.  The numbers are limited so if you would like to add your name to the waiting list.  Please telephone New Croft on 0191 2292999.

PrEP is a new way for people to reduce their risk of acquiring HIV.  PrEP is made up of two drugs, Tenofovir and Emtricitabine.  These drugs are known as antiretroviral medicines and have been used as part of HIV treatment for many years.

PrEP can benefit people if they are considered to be at high risk of HIV. PrEP can be used as a way to reduce risk of HIV if a person is HIV negative and does not always use condoms.

Other factors related to a higher risk of HIV are:

  • A recent STI (especially rectal infection such as syphilis, Hepatitis C or Lymphogranuloma venerum).
  • Use of PEP (post exposure prophylaxis)
  • Using some recreational drugs (crystal meth amphetamine, mephedrone or GHB/GBL)- also known as Chemsex.
