Team clinic for young people

TEAM supports young people living with HIV

The TEAM clinic offers a range of services specifically for young people living with HIV. It sees young people from the age of 13 until they are ready to move on to an adult clinic. TEAM supports young people to transition from child or other services to our clinic. This includes young people who have been living with HIV for their whole life or those who have been recently diagnosed.

TEAM clinic offers care tailored to the individual – and their medical, sexual, psychological and social needs are regularly assessed. The clinic ethos is to support young people to fulfil their potential, encourage autonomy and live positively with the virus.

TEAM  offers a friendly and relaxed environment for young people and members of the team are on-hand to answer any questions or advise on any difficulties they may be experiencing. TEAM is confidential.

All information is kept confidential and only shared between the patient and the team members.

TEAM clinic personnel

The clinic team includes doctors, a specialist nurse, health advisers and a clinical psychologist –  who are all experienced in working with young people. TEAM patients can also access the Bloomsbury Patient Representatives who are living with HIV themselves. They can advise on non-medical issues  –  the Law, employment, education, benefits, travel – and run courses including a Newly Diagnosed Course.

TEAM services include:

  • Specialist HIV care – including blood tests, results and free prescriptions
  • Support and information about all aspects of living with HIV such as, disclosure, relationships, friendships, living away from home, starting university or employment, taking medication, planning a family, etc.
  • A safe, confidential and friendly place to talk and to ask questions
  • One-to-one counselling and psychology services
  • Hepatitis testing and vaccinations
  • Sexual health advice and screening
  • Free condoms
  • Contraception, including emergency contraception at our in-house contraception clinic
  • Advice for partners on urgent sexual health screening, emergency contraception or Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) and Pre Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP).
