THT Direct is open every day
- 10am to 6pm, Monday to Friday
- 10am to 1pm, Saturday and Sunday
Our phone number is 0808 802 1221.
This is free to call from all UK landlines and most major mobile networks. It won’t appear on your telephone bill.
Live chat: 3pm to 5pm, Monday to Thursday
We're trialling a new live chat service to offer you support without the need to make a phone call.
Live chat is anonymous and confidential. We're offering it alongside our phone helpline, initially on weekday afternoons only.
At the end of your chat session, you'll be directed to an online survey about your experience. Please take a few minutes to fill this in as it helps us to understand how live chat is working. We'll use this feedback to develop the service further.
How we can help
Our advisers can provide emotional support if you are worried about your sexual health or have concerns about living with HIV. We can help you access services local to you across the UK, whether provided by us or by someone else.
If your call is complicated then one of our advisers may need to call you back when they’ve done some research. We’ll tell you when we are going to call back. We can also send out information to your home for you to read, in a plain envelope.
You can contact us to find out about:
You can get in touch with us by email to [email protected]k.
We’ll try and respond within three working days. If your question is urgent – such as about accessing PEP – then try calling for a quicker response.
If you prefer, you can email us and provide a telephone number so that we can call you.
