We are really pleased with the response from women that have received a letter, so far we have received over 1,400 calls from women that have received individual letters offering a blood test for hepatitis C and over 1,000 appointments have been booked.
43 specialist nurse led clinics will be held across the Health Board area for the next 5 weeks including weekends and we will continue to do everything we can to support patients.
We would encourage all women who receive a letter to contact the dedicated helpline number (open from 8am -8pm, 7 days a week) which is contained in each letter, to arrange their test as soon as possible.
We need to again stress that the risk of transmission is low and testing is being provided as a precautionary measure.
