Researched and written by Andrew Pearmain, HIV Consultant Practioner, Essex County Council - 2010.
The Full Research is worth a read as it covers historical to present day Social Support for HIV+ people around the country and how the AIDS Support Group has been used.

Healthcare professionals place high value on social care for people living with HIV... Report by NAT
…and express concern for the future.
NAT has launched a report, ‘The impact of social care support for people living with HIV: the results of NAT’s snapshot survey of healthcare professionals’, which strongly illustrates the continued need for social care support for people with HIV; the positive impact it can have on their lives and the value placed on it by clinicians. The report also details the real concern expressed at increasing difficulty in accessing social care and the loss of trained social workers.
Notes to the editor:
