Hepatitis C support


If you have tested positive for hepatitis C, we can provide one to one support to help you come to terms with the diagnosis and access treatment and care.

Hepatitis C is now completely curable and people who take treatment are able to clear hepatitis C in as little as 8 weeks with minimal side effects.

If you have tested positive for hepatitis C in the past but were unable to access or tolerate treatment back then, it is not too late. Hepatitis C treatment has changed dramatically and we can support you to get back in touch with the NHS services to access treatment.


Our support services

Through one to one services, our hepatitis C team can support you with the following:

  • Coping with diagnosis,
  • Understanding and accessing treatment,
  • Attending appointments,
  • Talking to family, friends and others about hepatitis C,
  • Taking care of your physical health and wellbeing during and after treatment,
  • Signposting to other services, such as housing, money management, addiction support, immigration and asylum services.

If you are living with HIV and/or hepatitis C, we can provide support with accessing treatment and care.

Free infant formula milk



To prevent the transmission of HIV to newborn babies, official guidelines recommend that people living with HIV do not breast/chestfeed and instead exclusively formula feed their babies.

However, formula milk is an expensive option that some parents struggle to afford. Commonly available powdered formulas can cost anything from £30-£60 per month depending on the brand and that’s before you factor in the additional costs of bottles and sterilisers.​

To overcome this barrier, Waverley Care can provide free formula milk for babies from birth up to age one.


We provide
  • 4 tins of formula a month for the first year of baby’s life,
  • Free bottles and sterilising equipment,
  • Flexible collection and delivery options,
  • Free and confidential support services.


How to access

If you are living with HIV and are pregnant, speak to your HIV specialist nurse about a referral or get in touch with us for information and advice.
