The London Joint Working Group on Substance Use and Hepatitis C (LJWG) have updated their 2011 London Consensus to make it relevant to the NHS in London today, in the era of new treatments and opportunities. 'Practical steps to eliminating hepatitis C: A consensus for London' reinforces the need for urgent leadership to improve hepatitis C testing and treatment services in London for people with a history of using drugs – the group most affected by chronic hepatitis C – in order to find and treat significantly more people affected by the disease. It contains a range of recommendations for drug services; specialist hepatitis treatment services; health and wellbeing boards; Directors of Public Health; Clinical Commissioning Groups and primary care professionals, and prisons.
