The Hepatitis C Trust (Scotland)
The Hepatitis C Trust is the national UK charity for Hepatitis C. It was founded and is now led and run by people with personal experience of Hepatitis C. Its mission is to reverse the rapidly increasing death toll caused by hepatitis C in the UK until no-one dies from this preventable and treatable disease and, ultimately, it is all but eradicated in this country.
Every Health Board in Scotland has a Managed Care Network (MCN) for Hepatitis C which coordinates local services. These are the contact details for the networks we are aware of. If you have contact details we can add to this list then please let us know.
