Proposed changes to the NHS and the benefits system inevitably mean there will be changes to the way services for people with HIV are delivered.

    * Health - the future of HIV health services
    * Welfare Reforms: changes to DLA, incapacity benefit and advice on navigating the system
    * Commissioning - balancing the budgets for HIV treatment and care

Meet the panel:

    * Dr Jane Anderson: Consultant, Homerton Hospital
