Increasing workload of an HIV/AIDS counselling service in a London teaching hospital, 1990-91.

Academic Article


  • The number of new patients referred to the HIV/AIDS Counselling Unit at the Royal Free Hospital, London, increased from 926 in 1989-90 to 1450 in 1990-91. Follow-up contacts nearly doubled during the same period of time. Growing demand for HIV testing as well as the shift to the treatment of HIV as a chronic condition increased the workload of the HIV/AIDS counsellors.
