HIV Treatment & Support

HIV Treatment and care

We offer HIV Treatment and care through the Specialist Sexual Health Service. Appointments are available at Avenue House in Eastbourne and Station Plaza in Hastings.

HIV clinics operate at

  • ‍Avenue House, Eastbourne
  • ‍Station Plaza Health Centre, Hastings

Our two clinics provide Monday to Friday outpatient HIV care.

We provide advice to colleagues in our local hospitals when people with HIV are admitted to hospital.

Our HIV clinics are part of an integrated sexual health service. This means that we can provide all your sexual health needs including STI screening, contraception, cervical screening at the same clinic visit.
