Johnathan Occleshaw is a Hepatitis C Coordinator for the North West region. In this article, on the Care, Grow, Live website, he explains how the Integrated Recovery Service in Halton micro-eliminated hepatitis C.
Change Grow Live’s Integrated Recovery Service in Halton has confirmed the successful 'micro-elimination' of the virus.
To achieve micro-elimination the Recovery Service had to:
- ensure that 100% of the people who use the services are offered a Hepatitis C test
- ensure that 90% of those people offered a test were tested
- support 75% of the people diagnosed with Hepatitis C to start treatment.
