The London Joint Working Group on Substance Use and Hepatitis C held our most recent annual conference on Thursday June 16th 2022, bringing together professionals working in hepatitis C care in London. You can watch the talks and panels on our YouTube channel.

This year’s conference heard from experts about the barriers and solutions to London becoming first global city to eliminate hepatitis C. It was held primarily in-person at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, 1 Birdcage Walk, London, but also live-streamed. Speakers included:

  • Dr Tom Coffey OBE – Senior Advisor to the Mayor of London on Health Policy
  • Rachel Halford – Chief Executive, The Hepatitis C Trust
  • Dr Monica Desai – Consultant Epidemiologist and Head of Hepatitis C and Blood Borne Viruses/Infections, UK Health Security Agency
  • Professor Graham Foster – Clinical Lead for Hepatitis C Virus, NHS England
  • Professor Geoffrey Dusheiko – Consultant Hepatologist, King’s College Hospital

The LJWG 2021 Alternative Annual Conference

The London Joint Working Group on Substance Use and Hepatitis C (LJWG) annual conference has historically brought together more than 150 healthcare professionals, public health specialists, patients and peer workers in the field of hepatitis C to network and share best practice. This year, we continued this tradition, offering an important moment to recognise the new challenges and opportunities hepatitis C services are experiencing as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

We ran three themed, virtual events between Thursday 25th February and Thursday 4th March, lasting between one and two hours. You can watch the events here and click below to find out more and access slides.
