This document provides a case study of a Local Authority service in Shropshire, in which nurses within a drug and alcohol recovery service team are employed by the Shropshire Community Health Trust whilst working alongside the Local Authority staff to provide the health element of the service. It details the processes, outputs, outcomes and key considerations of a project aiming to improve awareness of HCV, improve uptake of HCV testing and hepatitis B vaccinations among at-risk recovery service clients, improve referral rates to secondary care and decrease 'did not attends' (DNAs).
