A short life working group co-chaired by Prof John Dillon (NHS Tayside/University of Dundee) and Dr Esther Aspinall (NHS Ayrshire & Arran/Glasgow Caledonian University/HPS) has been established to bring together partners from NHS Scotland, health and social care partnerships and the third sector, to agree recommendations for best practice on HCV case-finding, re-engagement in care for people with HCV and HCV care pathways.

A national stakeholder event will be held on 24 May 2018 at COSLA in Edinburgh to present draft recommendations from this group. Guest speaker Professor Jeffrey Lazarus (University of Copenhagen/University of Barcelona) will present a global perspective and delegates will discuss recommendations, which will be published later this year.
