Hep-C medication is some of the most expensive prescribed by NHS England. 100 of the Mortimer Market Centre’s patients are already on medication, 1600 are on the waiting list …
The medication is extremely successful but does not give you immunity – you can get infected again. Due to the high costs involved, NHS England will not provide a second course of treatment.
Speakers will include Dr Sophie Flavell and Dr Diarmuid Nugent
