Hepatitis C programme

The Hepatitis Foundation no longer operates a Hepatitis C Follow-up Programme as Hepatitis C patient services are now managed by regional DHBs (District Health Boards).

Important: While the Foundation no longer operates a Hepatitis C Follow-up Programme, we still operate a Hepatitis B Follow-up Programme.

If you think you have hepatitis C or would like to access treatment please contact your local GP. However if you have any questions about hepatitis C or need someone to talk to you can call our helpline on 0800 30 20 10.

If you live in the Midlands region (BoP, Waikato, Taranaki, Lakes, Tairawhiti) your monitoring and follow-up is now managed by Waikato DHB.  If you have any questions about your Fibroscan appointment please call Kathryn on 07 839 8899 ext: 96289.

If you live in the Central region (Capital & Coast, Hutt, Wairarapa, Whanganui, Manawatu and Hawkes Bay) your monitoring and follow-up is now managed by Compass Health.  If you have any questions about your Fibroscan appointment please call Sheryl on 027 549 6614 or 04 978 4303.

For other regions please see your doctor (GP) for a referral to a Hepatitis C Programme near you.
