  • Guidance on testing for hepatitis B and C (with reference to HIV) Developed by Yorkshire and the Humber Hepatitis B and C Steering Group
    Individuals with chronic hepatitis (B and C) can be treated, which reduces the likelihood of chronic illness and premature death. Recognition of infection and treatment may also reduce the spread of infection. In 2010 across Yorkshire and the Humber there were 427 cases of hepatitis B (of which 39 were acute) and 980 newly identified hepatitis C infections reported through NHS/HPA laboratory testing, however HPA estimates calculate that there are over 20,000 people actually infected with hepatitis C in the region.

    These standards, produced by the Health Protection Agency in 2011, recognise that the detection and clinical management of hepatitis B and C can involve a number of health professionals, creating a diversity of clinical pathways. The development of the standards has also taken into account the fact that the prevalence of both hepatitis B and C varies markedly across the country and that current systems for the surveillance and follow up of cases also vary.
