Liver health screening van hits the road, offering free hep C tests

Royal Surrey’s Liver Health Checks team is touring around Surrey and surrounding counties this month (June), offering free hepatitis C testing.

Hepatitis C is a virus that can infect and damage the liver. People can become infected with the virus if they come into contact with the blood of an infected person. In most cases, hepatitis C causes no noticeable symptoms until the liver has been significantly damaged. The sooner treatment begins after exposure to the virus, the more likely it is to succeed.

Find the team on the dates and locations below:

  • Monday 10 June – Kay Pharmacy, Maidenhead, SL6 2SZ. (8.30am-4.30pm)
  • Tuesday 18 June – Railway pub car park, Crawley, RH10 6AA. (8.30am-5pm)
  • Wednesday 19 June – Railway Pub Car park, Crawley, RH10 6AA. (8.30am-5pm)
  • Tuesday 25 June – Dogflud Way, Farnham, GU9 7UT. 

Everyone is eligible for this free test and there’s no need to make an appointment – just drop by. The test takes just a few minutes, and results will be available a few minutes later.

Highly effective treatment for Hepatitis C is available at each of the main hospitals in Surrey. If diagnosed, people can access treatment quickly.
