Elly Hamlyn, an HIV consultant at the Royal Free, is full of praise for the routine blood borne virus (BBV) testing at the hospital’s A&E department. She sees people referred to the HIV clinic, where wraparound support is provided to people who’ve recently learnt their HIV status. Elly wants to drive home a really important point that HIV is an entirely treatable virus and an early diagnosis prevents ill health and onward transmission to loved ones.
