Information for GPs

General Practitioners are now able to prescribe and manage the treatment of hepatitis C using direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) in consultation with a gastroenterologist, hepatologist or infectious diseases physician experienced in the treatment of chronic hepatitis C infection.

Skilled and experienced clinicians may initiate hepatitis C treatment using DAAs without consultation with a specialist.
