Management of hepatitis C
This guideline provides evidence-based recommendations covering screening, testing, diagnosis, referral, treatment, care and follow up of infants, children and adults with, or exposed to, HCV infection. The remit encompasses prevention of secondary transmission of the virus but specifically excludes primary prevention of HCV infection.
This guideline will be of interest to all healthcare professionals in primary and secondary care involved in the management of people with hepatitis C infection. Patients, their family and friends may find the section on information for patients and carers particularly useful.
