Contact & Support

You've been diagnosed with a long term illness. On top of your normal, probably busy life, you are now coming to terms with a diagnosis, learning about an illness, managing the symptoms, making decisions about treatment and perhaps coping with any side effects. All of which raise a number of concerns and questions that you can't always answer.

They can however, be answered and discussed with friendly, knowledgeable, non-judgemental and sympathetic people. People that take the weight off your shoulders, and provide strength on those days that you just can't find it.

They could be friends and family, they could be people who also have Hepatitis C, they could be doctors or nurses, alternative therapists or trained counsellors. It doesn't matter who they are, as long as they are there for you.

Scotland provides one of the best support networks in the world for Hepatitis C positive people. You can get in touch with them right here.
