Where can I get on the PrEP trial for gay and bisexual men?
There are over a hundred clinics in England that are currently offering PrEP on the IMPACT trial.
Obtaining PrEP in Scotland and Wales is different and people wanting to take PrEP should speak to their GP or local sexual health clinic. To find out about accessing PrEP in Northern Ireland click here.
A few of them are currently fully subscribed or no longer taking on new applicants, however, you should ask about being on the waiting list if your nearest clinic is not able to give you a place.

What is the IMPACT trial?
Unlike in Scotland and Wales, PrEP in England is not freely available and you must apply to part of the IMPACT trial.
Over three years the trial will aim to recruit around 26,000 people as a way to reduce the risk of HIV infection amongst those who are at the highest risk of coming into contact with HIV – one of these groups is gay and bisexual men, as well as trans individuals.
The trial is to try and ascertain how many people will need PrEP in the future and how long they’ll need it for.
