What are your top tips for a person newly diagnosed with HCV?

As others have already said get some advice, and the Hepatitis C Trust is probably the best place to start. Don't just google it as you would be overwhelmed by the information that you will find. And yes it's not a great virus to have acquired, but don't blame yourself, however, you got it. you have it and need to focus your energy on your health and recovery.

Don't get fobbed off by g.p. Write things down at each appointment, You have to manage the time well, you don't get long and they try and get you rushed out of the door as they are usually running late...


Diagnosis, education, investigation/determination, treatment soon as possible.
