Headline

GPs told to potentially offer millions more HIV tests under new NICE guidelines

Comment

Great idea shall we do the pre test counselling, breaking bad news and contact tracing as well? I mean we are all twiddling our thumbs as it is. Who's up for learning all the new HIV drugs for the 'shared care' protocol that Follows? Or maybe just maybe sign post these people to their local sexual health clinic where they are already set up to do this kind of work. Fund them properly for it and fund us for all the rubbish you've already put on our plate.
