Hepatitis C testing

Hepatitis C is very easy to test for, treat and cure. Treatment has changed dramatically in recent years and there are no more injections. Locations are available all over the East of England, but if you would prefer to do the test yourself at home, please click here to complete our form for a free test to be sent to your home address.

Further information

For further information on Hepatitis C, please see the British Liver Trust website.

Hepatology patient experience group

The purpose of the Hepatology Patient Experience Group (HPEG) is to ensure that Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) NHS Foundations Trust’s hepatology department takes account of the views, opinions, and experiences of the patients and carers who use their services.

Feedback from hepatology patients will help us improve our services and better meet the needs of the local community.

Whether your experience has been a little or a lot, we invite you to join us. Please email for further information.
