according to Two-thirds of HIV clinics in the UK do not think there is a current need for specialist care services targeted at older adults, investigators report in HIV Medicine.
Investigators wanted to see if UK clinics were developing services for older patients and what form these services take.
Close to 50% of all patients accessing HIV care in the UK are now aged 45 years or older.
Only 23% of centres reported a need for specialist ageing services; these were in development at three clinics.
A web-based questionnaire was sent to all 182 clinics providing HIV care in the UK.
