  • HCV Action good practice case study: Widening access to treatment for PWIDs in Tayside
    This HCV Action good practice case study looks at the Tayside Hepatitis C Managed Care Network (MCN), and its work in making testing and treatment as accessible as possible to people who inject drugs. Established in 2004, the MCN has introduced a number of highly effective facets to its referral and treatment pathway, including the use of non-medical referrals, outreach clinics, and the roll-out of dry blood spot testing in non-clinical settings. It acts as an excellent example of how to respond to the particular needs of cohorts who can often find it difficult to access services.
