What's the difference?
Hepatitis Scotland is the national voluntary sector organisation funded by the Scottish Government to help improve responses to viral hepatitis* prevention, treatment and support.
Hepatitis Scotland supports and leads the work of voluntary sector groups in partnership with statutory agencies and patients towards:
Our key work focuses on:
*Viral hepatitis is a disease which causes inflammation of the liver and can lead to serious illness and death if left untreated. It is estimated that around 39,000 people across Scotland are chronically infected with hepatitis C - many of them unaware they are carrying the virus - while hepatitis B infections are a growing cause of concern.
Hepatitis Scotland offers free training on viral hepatitis primarily to non-statutory organisations. This includes specialist services working with drug users, generic services working with marginalised and disadvantaged young people (16-24 yrs, and services working with black and minority ethnic communities). If you wish to contact our Training and Development Officer please e-mail email@example.com.

Hepatitis Scotland endeavour to involve patients in the formation of viral hepatitis policy and care. As part of this we regularly seek to collect the views of patients by hosting a National Patient Forum at various times throughout the year. This is an opportunity to play a part in shaping policy, campaigns, events and more. If you are interested in participating in the National Forums please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
