Nurses in UK subject to HIV testing in the future?

    I find this a little disturbing. Not that health care workers will be tested for diseases, but that it's just HIV. Like Hep C is fine, but HIV isn't. If health care workers use standard universal precautions I don't think their health status is anyone's business. Any thoughts?

    All I could find in the UK nursing press was this. The last comment, though not from my union, says it for me.
