Jonathan Mann Clinic

Sexual Health JMC (Jonathan Mann Clinic for HIV care) icon

The Jonathan Mann Clinic is still open providing care and treatment for people living with HIV

To help life easier, we will try to do everything you need during a single visit

We can send you your test results (such as viral load and CD4 count) by text message or email, or arrange a follow-up phone call.

Phone advice about HIV is also available by calling the JMC reception, or you can also contact us by email.

Your HIV medication can be sent to you, or you can collect it from the clinic if you prefer. Please let us know if you realise you are down to your last two weeks’ worth of medication so that we can make sure you do not run out.
