Dr David Phillips is a consultant in Sexual Health & HIV in Croydon, South London for Croydon Health Services NHS Trust.
He graduated from Cambridge University Medical School in 2002. For his third year specialist degree, he chose "Anatomy B: Disease Society & Sexuality". This nurtured his interest in Genitourinary & HIV Medicine (GUM) and its impact on individuals and marginalised groups.

He was appointed as consultant at Croydon London in 2009 and became Clinical Lead in 2015. During the 2010s he has been a prominent figure in the SW London GUM-HIV network, chairing service delivery groups and leading training: he also played an active role in the clinical steering group for the Integrated Sexual Health Tariff. David is particularly interested in services for young people and vulnerable groups, as well as innovations to enhance efficiency whilst delivering high quality services: this includes the use of electronic record systems and other technologies that improve patients' access to information and care.
He has been Co-Chair of the Joint BASHH-FSRH Information Group since 2016 and has been involved in numerous consultations, and joint projects with PHE. He is a co-author of the 2019 edition of the Standards for the Management of Sexually Transmitted Infections and the new Standards for Remote and Online Services (joint with FSRH).
