Our services


York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust provides the HIV service in North Yorkshire and York. It is also a member of the The Humber and York HIV Network (HIV HAY) which coordinates the treatment, management and support of patients living with HIV in the North Yorkshire and Humber region. 

HIV is now considered a long term manageable illness. This means we expect people with HIV to live longer, continue with their work, education, have families and live their own life, have their own dreams and aspirations.

HIV is spread through the exchange of bodily fluids. This most commonly happens during unprotected sexual contact, such as vaginal, oral and anal sex.

People who inject illegal drugs and share needles are also at risk of catching HIV. The condition can also be spread from a mother to her unborn child.

For more information about local HIV services, clinics and support visit the HIV HAY website

Royal College of Nursing members at our Trust are taking part in strike action Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 February from 7.00am to 8.00pm. This will impact services at our hospitals.

If you are due to attend an appointment and we haven't already contacted you, please come as planned.

On days where there is strike action, patients should only call 999 if it is a medical or mental health emergency (when someone is seriously ill or injured and their life is at risk).
