Hep C treatments have been revolutionised!

If you’re living with, or think you might have hepatitis C and are not receiving treatment, you will be pleased to hear that it can be cured in as little as 8 weeks.

We asked a number of people across Scotland who have been through the treatment to tell us just how easy it was – watch the video to find out what they said.

The new treatments for hepatitis C have no nasty side effects and are just tablets, which means no more injections.

In this second video, we asked people what benefits they felt the treatments had brought them.

Cure rate - around 95% success

Hepatitis C treatments are almost always effective for everyone in Scotland.

Just tablets - no injections

Treatment for hepatitis C is now all in tablet form. Injections are no longer used to treat hepatitis C in Scotland.

Duration of treatment

Tablets can now cure the virus in as little as 8 weeks.

Side effects - minimal

Injections are no longer used to treat hepatitis C in Scotland meaning no more serious side effects.

Liver tests - easy and painless

Blood tests or an easy and painless scan (like an ultrasound) will check the health of your liver. Liver biopsies are no longer routinely used.

Treatment for all

Everyone can get treated in Scotland. Your treatment nurse or doctor will advise you further.
