Abstract

Patients with HIV are dying due to late diagnosis and physicians are being encouraged to increase HIV testing. The uptake of opt-in HIV screening for 1 13 lymphoma patients was audited at University College London Hospital. Of the 113 patients, 46 were not tested (41%). Previous research in the antenatal setting suggests that adopting opt-out screening would increase testing rates.
