Woman diagnosed with HIV after 30 years

People with HIV are being diagnosed late because hospitals and GP practices in England and Scotland are ignoring guidelines and failing to carry out HIV checks.

Victoria Derbyshire has been speaking to Vanessa Roberts. She was diagnosed with HIV in 2014 after living with the virus unknowingly for more than 30 years.

The Victoria Derbyshire programme is broadcast on weekdays between 09:00 and 11:00 on BBC Two and the BBC News channel.
