Story

"I simply do not believe there is another service in the NHS like it.”

56 Dean Street is Europe's busiest sexual health clinic. It's based in Soho and sees 1 in 4 of all the gay men who use sexual health services in the country. This year, it is marking its ten-year anniversary, reflecting on a decade of ground-breaking achievements and innovations that have shaped the landscape of sexual health and HIV care in London.

2023: PrEP Impact Trial proves the drug’s real-world effectiveness

The clinic has performed over 520,000 HIV tests over the past 10 years, as the dedicated team continue to work towards the Government’s goal of eliminating HIV transmission in the UK by 2030.

Dean Street Express has made significant strides in HIV prevention efforts, enrolling over 10,000 patients in the PrEP IMPACT Trial, which began in 2017. This real-world study played a crucial role in advancing research and expanding access to Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for individuals at risk of contracting HIV. The IMPACT Trial last year confirmed the effectiveness of PrEP in preventing HIV when taken in real-world settings.

"We’re not just about HIV and sexual health, we’re also about supporting our communities with issues from mental health to safeguarding, gender identity, relationship support and family problems. A typical day will require staff to do more than just hand you a swab…" Jon Clark, Clinic Manager of Dean Street Express.

As the largest provider of sexual health care within Europe, leading the way in innovation and research, we're determined to end HIV transmission in London. Our teams go above and beyond to reach those most at risk. Many of our LGBTQI campaigns and outreach work are kindly funded by the community.

With your help we can support more vulnerable people and improve their access and resources to healthcare.

Thank you!
