Event description

Description

Barts Health NHS Trust, in partnership with the London Borough of Waltham Forest (LBWF) Public Health team, invites you to attend a HIV & Hepatitis C briefing session. These sessions are being delivered as part of the European HIV- Hepatitis Testing and England National HIV Testing Weeks programme in the borough.

In order to increase HIV and viral hepatitis awareness and thus reduce late HIV and viral Hepatitis diagnoses within LBWF and its surrounding areas, there is a need to increase awareness among non-sexual health clinicians, both in statutory and voluntary organisations

Session/Aims & Objectives:

  • Have up-to-date knowledge of HIV and Hepatitis epidemiological trends in the LBWF
  • Be able to recognise HIV-related conditions/HIV Indicator Conditions presenting in non-Genito-Urinary (GUM) settings
  • Gain skills and knowledge on how to offer HIV and/or Hepatitis testing in their clinics or other outreach settings
  • Gain knowledge of the HIV Patient-Pathway within the borough
  • Have knowledge of HIV treatment options available
  • Learn about how other non-GUM Departments are offering HIV testing in their clinics at Whipps Cross Hospital

Please note that all the sessions are free of charge. We will provide a certificate of attendance and complimentary refreshments/lunch for delegates attending the sessions. Please book early to avoid disappointment as places are limited.

For more information please contact Elias Phiri (Barts Health NHS Trust)- Elias.Phiri@bartshealth.nhs.uk or Swabrina Njoku (London Borough of Waltham Forest)- Swabrina.Njoku@walthamforest.gov.uk.

NB: GPs, Pharmacists & other HCWs in the community can book and attend any of the sessions.
