Here we profile our outreach work with people with HIV/AIDS at the Ian Charleson Day Centre at the Royal Free Hospital, north London: “I am just so comfortable coming here: it’s like a second home to me. You can get different students treating you, but they all come from different backgrounds, so they can have different approaches which can be helpful, for example if I have a new problem. And they all know my HIV status, so I can be honest with them, which helps them to learn too....(more)
