  • Abstract:

    Background

    Despite being a high risk group for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, people who inject drugs (PWID) do not engage with health services. Increasing the awareness of HCV testing and the new direct acting antivirals (DAA) could increase self-referral of PWIDs to Substance Misuse Services (SMS).

    Methods

    1. Pharmacies in Brighton and Hove
