If you suspect you are at risk of having been exposed to Hepatitis C, you should get a test. Testing is quick, easy and confidential and can give you peace of mind and, if positive, access to treatment to clear the virus from your body and avoid life-threatening liver damage.

Waverley Care offers Hepatitis C testing as do other Hepatitis charities and drug addiction services, GP surgeries and sexual health clinics.

The test is a simple blood sample test with blood drawn from your arm or gathered from a simple finger-prick sample. The sample is sent away to be analysed in a lab and the results of the test will be available in a few days.
