Brighton and Sussex University Hospital demonstrate how they deliver HIV services

15 March 2011

The Brighton and Sussex University Hospital will host the House of Lords Committee on HIV and AIDS in the UK on 15 March to demonstrate how the hospital and its partners deliver HIV services in Brighton

The Committee will hear from local trailblazers in the prevention and treatment of HIV and AIDS.

The Committee will visit the Sussex Beacon hospice and St Peter’s Medical Practice as well as the hospital to see how HIV services are delivered in Brighton. They will meet patients, carers and Brighton's Community HIV team to understand the perspectives of patients and their carers and they will explore how Brighton’s medical services work in partnership with community care providers.

The Committee's Chairman, Lord Fowler, said:

"The only way we will be able to defeat HIV and AIDS is if we understand what the people who have it, and those who care for them, go through. So I am very glad to be visiting Brighton’s excellent facilities."
