Join People in Health West of England (PHWE) for this coffee catch-up, where you can ask researchers questions, give feedback and engage with research projects happening in your local area.

HIV can affect anyone. People with undiagnosed HIV may not realise that they have HIV until they become really ill.

This project aims to increase HIV testing in general practice by introducing an opt out policy. This means that people could be tested for HIV when they have a blood test for any other reason, unless they opt out. We want to know what people think about an opt out policy for HIV testing in general practice.

Dr Sarah Denford is a health psychologist at the University of Bristol. Her research involves working with people from underserved communities to co-develop support and information to help protect people from risks to public health.
