Dundee CHP supported a pilot piece of work in February 2013 by inviting all GP Practices to submit an audit of their BBV patient population. This resulted in 20 out of 26 Practices in Dundee satisfactorily completing the audit, which gave both the CHP and MCN an overview of the information, held by GPs.

As a result of this initial pilot, Dundee CHP (Community Health Partnership) in conjunction with the Tayside BBV MCN (Managed Clinical Network) introduced a project to identify patients in General Practice with a diagnosis of hepatitis B or hepatitis C with a view to encouraging appropriate investigation, management and referral of these patients. The project ran from August 2013 to March 2014 with 24 out of 26 Dundee practices agreeing to participate. This report provides an overview of the data collected.
