Working with key stakeholders, including the RCGP Scotland, to develop a survey to understand GP knowledge surrounding HIV and to examine the levels of HIV testing that occur in general practice. To prioritise collecting data where HIV is most prevalent, GP practices were targeted in areas with the highest HIV prevalence. Further semi-structured interviews were conducted with six GPs from different areas. Whilst our research recognised the work that GPs in Scotland are already doing to improve the lives of people living with HIV, it shows that testing opportunities are being missed when new patients register at GP practices in high prevalence areas.
