S5W-17780: Alex Cole-Hamilton (Edinburgh Western)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 20 July 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, in light of reported concerns, whether it has any plans to make the process easier for people who are eligible for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to gain access to it.

Answered by: Joe FitzPatrick 10 August 2018

PrEP is readily available on the NHS to those in Scotland who are most at risk of acquiring HIV infection. Boards are working hard to meet the demand for PrEP. Anyone wishing to discuss PrEP should contact their local sexual health clinic. Information on the eligibility criteria for PrEP is available at https://prep.scot/.
