Anne Murphy

Nurse Educator

Anne leads supporting the education and professional development of practice nurses in Kingston. She is also the clinical assessor for KEC's undergraduate nurses.


Kingston has experienced a significant increase in new HIV diagnoses, making initiatives like increased primary care testing even more pertinent. Routine HIV testing can be incorporated into any blood tests for adults and young people aged 16 and above, without the need for counselling. Simply informing patients that HIV testing is included in their yearly tests is sufficient. The guidance and top tips from the Elton John AIDS Foundation is for your reference.

Furthermore, Public Health Kingston are still commissioning and paying a tariff of £10 per HIV performed in practices at least until the end of this financial year, after which commissioning is likely to be restructured

We have HIV clinicians at Kingston Hospital who are keen to provide training for primary care colleagues.  Included is a poster that could be used at practices to inform patients of routine testing in clinic.

So far, and rather unusually,  we have had only 5 applicants for this session.

We would therefore very much appreciate it if you could remind any of your colleagues who may be interested in this that spaces are still available.


Subsequently the next date for this training will be Wed 3rd September.

If there isn’t a demand for this training then we reduce these sessions further to only once per year.
