‘SWAB to TAB’ Program on 3rd December 2018, 10 am to 1 pm in Community Response

On the day clients will be offered a pre-session intervention which looks at routes of transmission, testing and treatment. Post testing interventions will be delivered in a confidential, sensitive and supportive manner by a Community Response staff member and/or a Nurse specialist from the Mater hospital.

In conjunction with the Mater hospital we are offering an antibody swab test, a Fibrescan and an immediate appointment for a full blood screen and entry onto one of two care pathways with the Mater hospital. The centre clients are currently or were previously linked to, is not of importance, as this is a HepCare Europe research programme, all clients are eligible to be treated at the Mater hospital.

Clients who would like to get tested for Hepatitis C or who know they are Hep C positive and would like treatment are invited to attend. Clients must hold a valid PPS number and be over the age of 18.
