The number of people dying from liver disease in the UK has risen by 400% over the last 40 years according to the British Liver Trust.
The charity is calling for the Government to introduce early liver disease screening along with a specific national liver health prevention campaign which it said could save £600m and thousands of lives.
Chief Executive of the Trust, Andrew Langford, said: “If we do nothing, we will continue to see ever increasing rates of liver damage and early death.
"The average age of death from liver disease is 57, that’s over 20 years lower than deaths from cancer, stroke and heart disease – liver disease is now the third most common cause of premature death."
The organisation has launched its fourth annual 'Love Your Liver' campaign along with an online screening tool which is designed to help the public assess their risk of liver disease.
Maria Davies' partner Martyn Rogers was one of eight patients whose deaths were 'avoidable' at Cardiff hospital. She has told ITV News about the loss on what would have been his birthday.
Maria said she blames Professor David Berry for Martyn's death: "He didn't just take Martyn's life, he took mine as well. I'm nothing without him now. I just want the answers, I just want to know why they took him."
Dr Kevin Harris, Medical Director at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust said:
“There are no concerns about the current mortality rates in liver resection procedures carried out at the University Hospitals of Leicester.
" However, if as a result of the coverage from Wales any patients or relatives would like to talk to us they should call (free phone) 0808 178 8337."
University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust has commissioned an independent review into work of a suspended liver surgeon in Wales who previous worked at its hospitals.
In a statement, it said some of Professor David Berry's results were "lower than expected."
Lawyers representing the family of a man whose ‘avoidable’ death was linked to suspended liver surgeon David Paul Berry have called for Cardiff & the Vale University Health Board to make the findings of its internal inquiry public.
Martyn Rogers who died of blood poisoning and acute liver failure on 25 July last year, a week after undergoing surgery by Mr Berry to remove tumours from his liver.
His partner Maria Davies says she is "shocked to the core" after learning the deaths of other patients may have been preventable.
Cardiff and Vale University Health Board has set up a helpline for anyone who is concerned about the surgical care they received in relation to liver surgery between February 2011 and October 2012.
The helpline number is: 0800 952 0244.
It will be open from noon to 8pm from tomorrow until Friday.
Bosses at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board revealed the full extent of their findings as the partner of one of the eight patients whose death was "unavoidable", began legal action to find out exactly what happened.
Martyn Rogers, 66, of Newport, died of blood poisoning and acute liver failure in summer 2012 at University Hospital Wales.
His death on July 25 came one week after surgeon Dr Berry carried out the vital operation to remove tumours from his liver.
Lawyers acting for Maria Davies, his partner of 40 years,have launched their own investigation into what happened in the case of Mr Rogers.
A spokesman for Cardiff and Vale University Health Board (UHB) has said it can:
