Good practice case study: Nottingham outreach clinics
This HCV Action good practice case study looks at the community outreach work done by Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. Statistics showed that between 2000 and 2002, 256 people were diagnosed with hepatitis C in Nottingham. Of these, just 49% were referred to a specialist clinic, 27% attended and 10% received treatment. During the 2010-12 period, after the establishment of community outreach services in the area, 80% of people diagnosed were referred to a specialist clinic, 70% attended and 38% started treatment.
