Hiya Doc.

I'll chime in as I don't think you are going to get many UK Doctors or nurses replying here. Most members that are healthcare workers from the UK are "Am I infected" posters or emails.  ::)

The ban on HIV positive healthcare workers was lifed in the UK and, generally speaking, the Equality Act 2010 makes discrimination based on HIV status unlawful. 

Although I think there are certain rules & exceptions as a healthcare worker living with HIV such as being required to inform the employer &  to go on a register with the GMC and, to be monitored every three months, also exposure-prone procedures have regulations.

Perhaps best to be blunt and, simply ask the GMC and, perhaps the THT for stories.
Hope that at least points you in the right direction.
