New GP & Dentist recommendation resource for people with HIV
Posted on: March 5 2012, 04:07 pm

When I worked as Patient Rep at the Mortimer Market Clinic, one of the most common questions I was asked was which GP or dental practices across London were 'HIV-friendly'. Unfortunately I didn't have an answer apart from a few specific practices in Camden and Islington.

 Many people with HIV are still anxious about the reaction they may get from a GP or dentist if they tell them their status. Because of this, MyHIV.org.uk has partnered with IWantGreatCare.org to create an anonymous way to recommend high quality and sensitive health services. If you are living with HIV, please sign up and tell us which services do a good job of treating you so that others can find them more easily.

There is more information on theMyHIV site, including making complaints against poor services, here: http://www.myhiv.org.uk/HIV-and-you/Your-healthcare/GP-and-dentist-recommendations

or you can link directly to the recommendation site and make your anonymous recommendations here: https://tht.iwantgreatcare.org

Thanks in advance for your involvement and for helping others with HIV find services that will welcome them and uderstand their needs.
