WANT TO DO HEP C TREATMENT

& DON'T KNOW

WHERE TO GO?

Having trouble finding a GP

to prescribe you the new hep C meds?

 

We are compiling a list of clinics and doctors -who are happy to treat people who are currently using drugs- and we KNOW are prescribing the new Hep C meds.

We have no way of guaranteeing that you will get an appointment but hopefully, with these few tools, it will make the getting of the new meds a little bit easier for us all!

We Need YOUR Help!

At HRVic, we are receiving calls and emails daily from our community and our supporting clinics and organisations asking if certain cities and towns and suburbs have the new hep c treatment prescribers in them and WHO are they? ..Unfortunately we have been trying to compile a list for the past few months and it is turning out much more difficult than we first imagined and a whole lot more work!! Drs are asking us to NOT put them on a list as the few who are prescribing are over run at the moment.

If you are wondering if your GP or a clinic near you is prescribing the new treatments, the best thing to do is CALL them up and ask. If you find out that they are or aren’t, then please let us know so we can add it to our list of “Yay or Nay’s”.  We would appreciate any assistance you can give in this matter.

 

Ok- Lets start with the places we KNOW of that ARE prescribing:

 

*Please note!!

This list of clinics/doctors is only a list of prescribers that we have heard are prescribing the new (hep c direct-acting antiviral) medications through people who have received the new treatments.

The doctors whose names appear in blue on our list HAVE agreed to be listed and HRVic wishes to thank them for supporting and working with our community.

Calling one of the doctors or clinics on this list does not mean that you will necessarily get an appointment or are guaranteed to get seen by the doctor(s) at these places.

This list is for your reference only. However- You can’t try unless you know where and how to!

Good luck!
