A new cross-party MEP group has been launched in a bid to ensure that Europe's estimated 29 million chronic liver condition sufferers "are not forgotten".

The 'Friends of the liver MEP group', chaired by British deputy Stephen Hughes, aims to promote the issue of liver health at EU level, act as an information and exchange forum between stakeholders and EU policymakers and provide input and expertise on EU health related policies.
