PEP available now at Saturday Pitstop Clinic

27th May 2011

The Metro Centre is now offering PEP (Post Exposure Prophylaxis) every Saturday at the Pitstop+ Clinic for men who have sex with men.
You will receive a PEP starter kit, and continued care will be provided by the Trafalgar Clinic at Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

"PEP is a course of anti HIV drugs. It can prevent you or your partner from getting HIV if you had unprotected sex or the condom failed. PEP is effective if accessed within 72 hours after exposure/ unsafe sex. There is no guarantee that it will work."

The Pitstop+ Clinic on Saturdays is open between 11am - 1pm. If you need PEP outside these hours please go to any A&E immediately. Do not delay!

For information contact the Metro Centre on 0208 305 5000

Abimbola- First Point

It has been a long time since I felt that someone actually listened to me.

Simon - Mentoring

By discussing things at such an intimate level with my mentor, I really came face to face with some of the reasons why I was taking chances before.

David - Counselling

Outstanding people. Outstanding service. Outstanding counselling. Truly something that has allowed me to turn my life around.

Sarah - Counselling

The help and understanding I experienced from everyone I came into contact with whilst using the Metroís services was amazing.

Joan - First Point

Thank you so much for taking time to listen to me and truly understand how I am feeling. This is the only appointment I've had regarding HIV that didnít feel rushed.

Joe - Mentoring

The programme had such an impact on my life that I decided to come on board as a volunteer mentor!

Kwasi - Mentoring

During the 6 month programme, I developed a close relationship with my mentor. Knowing that I would have to talk to him honestly about what I did in the previous 2 weeks somehow forced me to be safe every time I had an encounter.

Peter- First Point

I felt so relieved to have a named First Point worker who I can call if I need to be referred to a particular service.

Ebere - First Point

I wish this service was around when I was newly diagnosed. I felt my world had fallen apart around me and I didn't know which way to turn for support. You are offering a very valuable service.

Michael - Counselling

I gained a huge amount of help from the counselling service and would like to thank the service for offering so much support.

METRO is always looking for talented people of all backgrounds for a variety of interesting roles, as employees and volunteers.
Support comes in many forms, money is one of them! We'd very much appreciate a donation to help us continue our work.
