The most recent data published by Public Health England in its hepatitis C in the UK 2014 Report, show that cases of hepatitis C related end stage liver disease and liver cancer are increasing. NHS England and Public Health England are working together to address this by developing a joint framework to improve the management of this disease. This framework will be launched in due course.
