Business case template: ITTREAT (Integrated community-based Test – stage – TREAT)


HCV Action
MS Word

Following a successful 4-year project evaluation in Brighton, the ITTREAT team have produced a commissioning business case template based on their project, intended for use to secure funding for a specialist hepatitis C nurse and develop an integrated community-based hepatitis C service to engage PWID. The template is available for download in word and is designed to be locally amended. For a summary of the ITTREAT project in Brighton, see the good practice case study here:
