HIV support services

HIV treatment is highly effective in improving the quality of life of people living with HIV. Now, with U=U (undetectable = untransmittable), treatment is also an effective way of preventing passing on HIV to partners.

YorSexualHealth (YSH) runs a free and confidential support service for people living with HIV and their partners and carers in York and North Yorkshire.

We can support you with:

  • Self-management of your physical and mental health
  • Assistance with benefits and getting back into work or education
  • Peer support and group support opportunities
  • Symptoms management 

You can be referred to the service by a member of YSH staff or you can also fill in our self-referral form and send it back to us at socialsupport@york.nhs.uk. Click here to download the form.
