New Hepatitis C Support Group
A new informal support group open to anyone who would like information or support around transmission, testing and treatment for Hepatitis C is launching in Dorset in June.
This is an opportunity for people, family and friends whose lives are affected by the Hepatitis C virus. The group is an informal gathering with a peer lead focus where people can share their experiences. It offers a safe, confident environment to discuss thoughts, emotions and experiences about living with hepatitis C before, during or after treatment. Resources and information people need to care for their liver will be provided.
The groups is there to let people know that they are not alone. There are an estimated 150 million people worldwide who are chronically infected with Hepatitis C.
If you have been recently diagnosed with Hepatitis C and would like guidance on treatment options and support then this is a group that can support you.
The first session of the group will be on Thursday 16th June between 1pm and 2.30pm and will be held every 2nd Thursday of the monthat Quakers House, 8 Holloway Road, Dorchester, DT4 1LF.
