Commun Dis Public Health. 2004 Sep;7(3):212-5.


This study was conducted to determine the extent to which genitourinary medicine clinics in the East of England region are monitoring the uptake of HIV testing. Ninety-four per cent of GUM clinics in the region offer HIV testing to all new patients. The uptake varied around the region, but all clinics are able to monitor uptake and the majority of clinics can audit uptake. The overall regional uptake has already exceeded the target for 2004.
