  • HCV Action good practice case study: Northern Ireland Hepatitis B & C Managed Clinical Network's 'Mind the Gap' project
    This HCV Action good practice case study looks at the 'Mind the Gap' project established by the Northern Ireland Hepatitis B & C Managed Clinical Network (MCN). After an audit was carried out in 2009 which identified a gap between the numbers of people testing positive for hepatitis C in the country and the numbers of people being referred on to the hepatology clinic at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast, the MCN developed a rigorous process of identifying those individuals who had not been referred and contacting their clinician (repeatedly, if necessary) in order to ensure that a referral was subsequently received. The project has had significant success, with 100% of all HCV PCR positive cases now being accounted for, and virtually all patients requiring referrals now being referred. It acts as a model of how simple steps to ensure follow up can facilitate a significant increase in the number of referrals being received. The case study details why the project was established, how it works, and the outcomes that it has achieved.

  • 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.

  • HCV Action good practice film: CQUIN scheme in the East Midlands
    This HCV Action good practice film looks at the Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN) scheme which was established in the East Midlands in 2009. Running until 2013, the scheme rewarded local treating hospitals for sharing their data on the treatment adherence and sustained virological response (SVR) rates of their patients, and was extremely successful in highlighting, for example, where additional resources or focus were required. Despite ending in 2013, the practices that the scheme encouraged (i.e.
