Hepatitis C patients and nurses have made clear, in two reports launched by The Hepatitis C Trust today (7 March 2017) , the significant challenges still faced by people living with the virus, including societal stigma as well as the on-going restrictions on access to NICE-approved, curative treatments.

The reports, titled Patient Perspectives and Nurses' Perspectives, were written after a series of interviews with patients and an online survey with nurses, and lay bare not only the reality of how treatment rationing affects patients and nurses, but also the stigma, fear and isolation still felt by many people living with hepatitis C.
