If you are taking PrEP, it is important that you get checked up regularly (every 3 months). If you are getting your PrEP elsewhere, we provide monitoring free of charge at all 3 of our clinics. Just tick “I want to discuss PrEP or have it monitored” when you check in. Please attend for a monitoring session two weeks before beginning PrEP, and every three months thereafter.
