  • Standards for Local Surveillance and Follow Up of Hepatitis B and C
    These standards, produced by the Health Protection Agency in 2011, recognise that the detection and clinical management of hepatitis B and C can involve a number of health professionals, creating a diversity of clinical pathways. The development of the standards has also taken into account the fact that the prevalence of both hepatitis B and C varies markedly across the country and that current systems for the surveillance and follow up of cases also vary.
