Guidance: Hepatitis C prevention, diagnosis and treatment in prisons in England


Mar 2016 by The Hepatitis C Trust
This document, published by The Hepatitis C Trust after convening an expert group of prison healthcare commissioners and practitioners, provides commissioners and prison healthcare teams with practical guidance regarding the implementation of opt-out BBV testing and related hepatitis C care pathways, which can be adapted and used by any prison that needs to develop, revise or update their services.

This guidance will assist in providing prison healthcare staff with the relevant information, training requirements and agreed procedures to further improve the way in which they diagnose, test and treat people for hepatitis C in prisons.
