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 Megan on 04 260 6689.
