Help make hep C history: linking patients with GPs and pharmacies

Revolutionary treatments for hepatitis C are now available on the PBS. They can be prescribed by general practitioners (in consultation with a gastroenterologist, hepatologist, or infectious disease physician experienced in the treatment of chronic hepatitis C infection).

The drugs are championed by Australian Minister for Health, The Hon. Sussan Ley, and redefine hepatitis C as a relatively easy-to-treat health condition.

Over the past three months, Hepatitis NSW has been building an online web directory of GPs and pharmacies who work with the new drugs. Our aim is to link patients with their local service providers. 

In the Central and Eastern Sydney PHN region we currently have just 40 GPs or chemists but we'd like to have many more.

To be added to the directory, or if you'd like more information about the DAA drugs, please email pharvey@hep.org.au
