Details

Untreated hepatitis C infection causes cirrhosis and liver cancer. Very effective, well tolerated oral therapies are now available on the NHS.

To enable people previously diagnosed with hepatitis C to be treated for their infection, NHSE and Public Health England (PHE) have organised a national ‘patient re-engagement exercise’ to help find and treat people with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection.

These documents provide further information about this important initiative.
