Hepatitis C education
Our team at Ballarat Community Health can provide education and advice in regards to hepatitis C, as well as the monitoring of clients who are undergoing or considering treatment for hepatitis C. Initial sessions are 60 minutes. Follow up sessions can be 30-60 minutes.
Fibroscans are now available for a limited time! Our integrated hepatitis C nurse currently has an EC Fibroscans for a short rotation and is available to perform Fibroscans at Ballarat Community Health and at other hepatitis C nurse-led clinics at Daylesford, Maryborough, Stawell, Ararat, Horsham and Nhill. Appointments are available to all new and existing clients throughout the Grampians region. For more information, please contact Michelle on 0459 819 601.
As tattooing and body art is one of the most common ways of contracting hepatitis C, BCH also offers a tattoo/body art hepatitis C education program for students in years nine through twelve. Appointments and referral to any of the clinics or education programs can be made by individuals, health service providers or GPs. For more information or to book an appointment, make an enquiry or request a call via the customer service menu on the right hand-side of your screen. Alternatively, call us directly on (03) 5338 4500.
This program is free.
