HIV infection

The Alexander Pringle Centre (formerly known as the Coleridge unit) is one of the 10 largest specialist services for patients with HIV infection in the UK. It cares for approximately 1,200 patients.

What we offer

We provide outpatient and inpatient care, including antiretroviral treatment, specialist advice and multi-disciplinary care. Specialist care arrangements are in place for patients with HIV and tuberculosis, malignancies, renal failure and pregnant women with HIV.

Our outpatient department is staffed with a clinical nurse specialist, two clinic nurses, a dedicated phlebotomist and a team of support staff.


We provide specialist HIV nursing and midwifery care for our patients. We work closely with partners in social care and the voluntary sector to provide holistic support to meet patients’ needs. Patients can access clinical research trials. Our HIV pharmacy team provides treatment clinics for patients who are starting antiretrovirals and those requiring more support.


We also offer a range of integrated community sexual health services in a number of locations in Enfield.
