Empowering our community
Working to prevent hepatitis transmission and reduce the impact for people affected
We offer free walk-in tests. A hep C test is quick and easy with just a prick of the finger. You get results back in under an hour. Find out more
Treatment for hep C is a short course of medication. Our GP and harm reduction workers will support you through the process. Find out more
The only way to know if you have hep B is by getting a blood test. You can’t tell if you have hep B by symptoms, looks, history, country of birth, or the hep B status of others around you. Many people with hep B don’t have any noticeable symptoms, either. Find out more
Hep B can be very complex and not every doctor has a good understanding of it. You can check our directory for a hep B specialist doctor or use this resource to help you and your doctor through hep B testing.
