Telling your GP that you have HIV

You don't have to tell your GP that you have HIV. Some people are reluctant to tell their GP because they are worried about confidentiality. However, there are some reasons why it makes good sense to tell your GP that you have HIV. It will help them provide the most appropriate treatment and care. For example, if you are taking HIV treatment, it’s important to consider potentially harmful interactions with other medications. Knowing that you have HIV will enable your GP to look out for signs and symptoms of illnesses or side-effects.
