Are you looking for a GP

to prescribe you the new hep C treatment?

 

We have compiled a list of clinics and doctors who are happy to treat people who are currently using drugs

without judgement or shame - and who 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 hep C treatment

a little bit easier for us all.

Side note:

We Need Your Help!

At HRVic, we receive calls and emails daily from our community asking about hep C treatment prescribers. 

We have been compiling a Treatment Prescriber list for the past few years and it is turning out to be much more difficult than we first imagined and a whole lot more work.

As well as this, some doctors are asking us to NOT to put them on a list as the few who are prescribing, are over run with patients 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 the clinic directly and ask them. If you find out that they are or aren’t, then please let us know so we can add it to our list or take them off. 

We are all in this together and if we can all help each other out the better we will all be for it. We would appreciate any assistance you can give in this matter.
