NHS England is responsible for commissioning high quality HIV treatment and care, and therefore for addressing recommendations from the British HIV Association national audit 2015. NHS England published a service specification ‘Specialised HIV Services for Adults (Outpatient and Inpatient Services)’ in 2013. The aim is to provide specialist assessment and ongoing management of HIV and associated conditions in order to support patients to stay well (reduced mortality and morbidity) and to reduce the risk of onward transmission of HIV. The service aims to ensure that the outcomes, wellbeing and quality of life of adults with HIV are maximised. Further information is available at the following link:
