Gareth Thomas & HIV The Crescent talks to Roberto Perrone on BBC 3CR

Hi all,

Listen again to our Iain Murtagh talking to Roberto Perrone on BBC3CR last month after Gareth Thomas revealed he is living with HIV. Talking about awareness, stigma and how great it was to see Mr Thomas talking openly about the condition, and why it really is a very manageable condition now.

Listen from 1 hour 6 mins 30 here;

The Crescent on BBC 3 Counties with Jim McManus DPH at Herts County Council

Dear all,

We were on BBC 3 counties Friday afternoon with the Director of Public Health at Herts County Council talking about HIV testing, why the County Council wont fund the Crescent and also why Herts Aid don’t provide the service either, despite a huge amount of funding.

You can listen again here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02x6f74 we are on from 2hrs 20 mins the Roberto Perone Show 31st July on BBC 3 Counties Radio.

As you will hear the Director of Public Health is very reluctant to commit to anything, wouldn’t answer the presenter’s questions about why Herts Aid don’t provide the service, nor why he wont fund us. He┬áseemed more interested in suggesting the Crescent didn’t understand the issues…

We will leave you to decide why Herts County Council refuse to fund us despite Public Health England asking for more community based testing…

HIV Home Testing Kits

Dear all,

Yesterday we were on the Roberto Perrone show on BBC3Counties radio talking about why we feel the home testing kits now on sale may not be suitable for all when testing for HIV. We feel without appropriate support this could potentially have serious consequences for some due. Listen again on the following link, we are on from 2hrs 19 mins http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02p67ls

Thanks as ever for your support, hope to see you on our open day on 06 June, all welcome !!
