Event description

Description

Hepatitis C represents a serious health inequality issue that predominantly affects disadvantaged and marginalised groups. With the aim of enhancing local service provision and seizing the opportunity for progress provided by the recently-announced NHS England hepatitis C elimination deal, this roadshow is focused on:

• Showcasing and sharing good practice in the prevention, testing, diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis C
• Identifying specific issues and potential solutions for tackling hepatitis C in the West London ODN area

The roadshow event will include talks on the hepatitis C epidemiology landscape in the region, examples of best practice, and opportunities for the elimination of hepatitis C as a major public health concern. Afternoon workshops will be held on identifying solutions to challenges faced by the ODN, awareness and testing in drug services and hepatitis C in prisons.

Who should attend:
• Drug and alcohol professionals
• Primary and secondary care professionals
• Commissioners
• Local laboratory leads
• Prison healthcare professionals
• Directors of public health and their teams
• Local Public Health England and HMPPS leads
• Those with an interest in hepatitis C and BBVs

Registration will begin at 9.30am, with the programme starting at 10am and concluding at 3.30pm. A free lunch will be provided.

The full agenda will be published shortly.
