PHE and NHSE launch national drive to trace hepatitis C patients

Public Health England (PHE) and NHS England have launched a national exercise to identify and treat patients who have been previously diagnosed with hepatitis C.

In recent years new, potentially curative treatments have been developed for hepatitis C, but tens of thousands of people who were diagnosed in the past may not have accessed them.

A new report by PHE shows more than 24,500 people in England have accessed new hepatitis C treatments in the past three years.
