Hepatitis C Nurse Specialist Service

Our team of specialist nurses are trained and experienced in the management and treatment of Hepatitis C.

The team plays a key role in supporting patients through treatment across primary and secondary care, as well as in the local prisons.

The nurses support consultant Hepatitis C clinics, run nurse-led clinics in Doncaster Royal Infirmary and prisons, work in the community with drug and alcohol services, run community clinics across the borough and offer a telephone support service. They also offer adhoc home visits as required.

The aims of our team are:

  • To support patients with newly diagnosed Hepatitis C to understand their condition and what it means to them.
  • To educate people about liver disease and how their lifestyle can impact on this and how they can improve it.
  • To enable all patients diagnosed with Hepatitis C to access treatment.
  • To be a resource for educating all.

The team can help you by:

  • Listening to any problems and answering questions on Hepatitis C.
  • Liaising with other services or disciplines to ensure a high quality holistic approach is provided.
  • Educating people with Hepatitis C and others involved in their care to have a better understanding of their condition.
  • Providing side effect management when the patient is receiving treatment, with support via telephone support and /or medication prescribing.
  • Taking blood from those with poor venous access prior and during treatment to enable monitoring to take place.

Referral criteria:

Any adult with a positive Hepatitis C diagnosis can be referred to the service by anyone involved in their care. We also accept self referrals.
