Where to go and who to meet?

Who will I meet on my journey with Hep C?

During treatment you'll get to know the GPs and nurses at your own health centre, as well as a team of specialist doctors and nurses at your treatment centre. 

At the beginning of treatment, and at key moments, you will meet your consultant, who is a liver expert. You will also meet a specialist nurse who will look after you during your treatment. You will probably get to know each other very well during the course of your treatment and they will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Some advice is provided in terms of dealing with your doctor and other health professionals. It's also worth meeting the voluntary sector support organisations devoted to helping Hepatitis C patients.

Where do I go for treatment?

Treatment for Hepatitis C is available across Scotland, typically within a hospital setting.  Please refer to the Service Finder for your nearest treatment centre.
