Post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is a treatment that can prevent a person that has been exposed to HIV (e.g. through sex with a person with untreated HIV) from becoming infected with HIV. PEP should be started as soon as possible and must be started within 72 hours of the exposure.
If you think you may need PEP we can offer you a telephone consultation Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 4pm on 01592 64 79 79. When you call please tell the receptionist this is for PEP as we will prioritise your call.
As PEP needs to be started quickly if you need PEP and our advice line is not open then you should contact your nearest Accident and Emergency department who will make an arrangement to see you.
PrEP during COVID-19
We are currently not able to start anyone on PrEP but are continuing to offer a PrEP service to those who have previously been receiving it from us.
If you remain eligible and require an appointment or advice on how to pause your PrEP please call the Sexual Health Fife Health Advisers on 01592 72 92 68.
