HRH Prince Harry visits Mildmay – 14Dec15

HRH Prince Harry’s visit to Mildmay at the end of 2015 marked the official opening of our brand new, purpose built hospital which replaced earlier buildings. The Prince also visited Mildmay to be interviewed for the excellent BBC One documentary The Truth About HIV which aired in 2017.
In 2015 an estimated 101,200 people were living with HIV in the UK, 13,500 were unaware of their diagnosis and at risk of passing HIV on to others.

People with a late diagnosis are much more likely to develop severe health conditions.  This includes HIV associated brain impairment, which can present with symptoms similar to severe dementia.  Patients arrive at Mildmay in need of 24-hour care, with some being unable to walk or talk when first admitted. Mildmay provides a range of therapies and medical care combined with medication and rehabilitation, which means that over 85% of patients return to independent living in the community upon discharge from Mildmay. Patients from all over the country are referred to the hospital and for many their lives are transformed beyond belief.
