The LJWG has joined forces with the All Party Parliamentary Group on Liver Health to urge Health Minister to let pharmacies dispense hepatitis C treatments
Following the success of the LJWG’s hepatitis C pharmacy testing pilot, the group has joined forces with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Liver Health to urge the government to allow pharmacies to dispense hepatitis C treatments.
Chemist + Druggist magazine has reported on the issue, highlighting the LJWG pilot’s findings that 84% of people who were tested in the pharmacy reported that they would like to receive hepatitis C treatment but at the community pharmacy.
