Hepatitis C Services

Hepatitis C is a blood-borne virus that affects your liver.

Without medicine to treat it, hepatitis C can cause liver disease and liver cancer.

There is now a cure for hepatitis C that works really well.

You can get hepatitis C if your blood comes into contact with infected blood.

Some ways this can happen are:

  • sharing needles, syringes or other injecting equipment, including spoons
  • tattooing or body piercing with unsterile equipment
  • medical procedures with unsterile equipment
  • sharing toothbrushes, razors or nail files.
  • Treatment is available resulting in cure for over 95% of people with chronic hepatitis C.
